Arsenal long-serving defender set to leave Emirates Stadium this summer

By | May 3, 2021

Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin has been a key figure in his side’s back four this season, starting 22 Premier League matches on the right side of the defence.

The 26-year-old defender, however, has lost his place in the starting XI since the end of February as Calum Chambers and Cedric Soares have alternated in the right-back slot.

Calciomercato.it now reports the Spain international right-back has emerged as a target for the Serie A giants Juventus.

It’s stated that during recent talks with Arsenal, the defender got the green light to depart the Emirates after this season, although it has not been made clear whether the discussions took place between the two parties or between the Gunners and Juve.

The media outlet further adds they have found out the Premier League club have decided to let go of the player if they receive a bid in the region of €20-25m.

Bianconeri have an advantage because the player likes the idea of signing for the Turin club, but apart from the Italian heavyweights, Bellerin is also a target for Inter Milan, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.

There is nothing to indicate whether any of the outfits are ready to meet Arsenal’s €20-25m valuation for the full-back, but the price is there and they know what to do if they want him in their roster going forward.
