The story surrounding Hector Bellerin leaving Arsenal seems to be looking real as this is coming again. The latest story on Bellerin’s future at the club says that Juventus are now interested in taking the Spanish defender next season.
A fee of around £50m has been mooted as the asking price if any deal is going to happen. A respectable reporter that works at Cadena SER, Bruno Alemany told radio station El Larguero that negotiations are in advance stage over a move this summer.

It’s certainly not the first time the media have reported a link between the two sides, there were plenty of reports in January that the Italian champions were tracking the defender.
At just 23 years of age, Bellerin looks perfect for the Italian club, with his wealth of experience in the Premier League and European competitions, he could be the missing piece of the puzzle for Juventus.
As regards the player leaving the club, nothing is certain now Arsene Wenger is leaving and it remains to be seen whether or not the club will allow him go.
Another reason this deal might stall is the fact that the next club manager is not known yet which means that everyone is being cautious and with Bellerin’s deal currently set to expire in 2023, there will be no rush on the part of the club.
The good news for Arsenal fans is that Bellerin looks like a player who wants to be at the club and with a lengthy contract still in place, the club will be in no rush to sell him.
