On Monday evening, RMC Sport reported Arsenal’s Héctor Bellerín has been offered to Paris Saint-Germain for a summer transfer.
RMC also believe the right-back is likely to leave the north London club in the ongoing window.
Juventus have emerged as a new contender for the 25-year-old, according to Calciomercato.
Andrea Pirlo, the Turin club’s new manager, has expressed a desire to strengthen the right side of his defence.
It’s claimed the Gunners fullback remains the ‘favourite’ target for the Italian coach and the latter has ‘asked for’ Bellerin’s signing.
Juventus’ sports director Fabio Paratici travelled to London last week, with the intention of finding new homes for some fringe players.
During his time in the English capital, there was a way for Paratici to ‘deepen the discussion’ with Mikel Arteta’s side for Bellerin. According to the report, the Spaniard is ‘not unsellable’ for Arsenal, but he has a high price tag.
Calciomercato suggest it would be better for Juve to think of signing the defender by paying cash rather than through an exchange operation. Apart from Bellerin, Juve also have Ajax’s Sergiño Dest on their radar.
Juventus are already at work to please their new manager. However, the website explains the Old Lady must first raise funds through player sales to understand ‘who, how, when to buy’ this summer.
