The news about the possible departure of Arsenal’s Spanish defender, Hector Bellerin is gathering momentum with reports claiming that he is close to agreeing a deal with Italian giants Juventus.

The Old Lady are eager to finalise a deal as soon as possible and have the Spaniard sign before the start of the World Cup this summer. The Daily Mirror cites a report from Bleacher Report claiming the Italian giant are already in talks for the 22 year old.

Due to his poor form and recent wide-spread criticism, Bellerin could be one of several players that will be heading for the exit door as the club is going through a complete overhaul and despite being linked with a move back to Barcelona, it looks like Juventus looks a more likely destination should he leave Arsenal.

Factors that will determine Bellerin’s future at Arsenal could be the as-yet-undecided future of Arsene Wenger and the possibility of Arsenal qualifying for the Champions League via the back door and somehow turning the season around and winning the Europa League in Lyon.
