Juventus are interested in signing Hector Bellerín from Arsenal, according to reports in Italy.
The right-back is believed to be a target for the Italian champions, with TMW claiming Juventus have repeatedly been in contact with the player’s representatives. However, they’ve failed to reach any agreement on each occasion. The Serie A outfit lost Dani Alves to Paris Saint-Germain last season and potentially view Bellerin as a replacement.
For me, it seems Hector is best off staying where he is. The defender still has more to learn, and he has a guaranteed starting spot for every big game. No one at Arsenal is challenging his position, and although competition is healthy for the success of the team, the Spaniard is gaining plenty of experience.
Plus, as Bellerín seems to be the only player in the Arsenal squad who is actually tied down to a long-term contract, Arsène Wenger isn’t going to want to let him go for at least a couple of years, in my opinion. If he does look to sell Bellerin, Arsenal will be able to command a large asking price.
Maybe Juventus are interested, but I can’t see that interest leading anywhere in the near future.
