Arsenal star’s reps contacted by Champions League giants over surprise transfer

Posted by

Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin is a reported transfer target for Juventus, who are said to have approached the Spain international over a move to Turin.

Massimiliano Allegri is seemingly in the hunt for a top class replacement for Dani Alves, who left Juve for Paris Saint-Germain at the end of last season, leaving a gaping hole on the right-hand side of the club’s defence.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Juventus have made contact with Bellerin’s entourage over a possible transfer, though it seems little progress has been made over a deal.

Bellerin, 22, is regarded as one of Arsenal’s most important players and one of the top young defenders in Europe at the moment after a superb rise at the Emirates Stadium in the last few seasons.

Poached at a young age from Barcelona, Bellerin has worked his way up from Arsenal’s youth teams to the senior side, becoming a regular in the 2014/15 season.

The Telegraph reported that Barca were keen to re-sign him in the summer, only for the Gunners to send a strongly-worded letter warning them away.

Still, Arsenal may have to fight to keep him again if reports of Juventus’ interest are to be believed.
