Juventus are keeping tabs on Hector Bellerin, according to reports in Italy.
The Spanish right-back is regarded as one of Europe’s finest in his position and has been linked with a move back to former club Barcelona in recent months.
It’s believed Barcelona are keen to sign the 22-year-old to fill the void left by Dani Alves, who joined Juventus last summer, and although reports were suggesting they were readying a £35million bid for the Spaniard, the La Liga club have since withdrawn their interest for now.
However, it now appears Juventus are looking at Bellerin, with Italian publication Tuttosport claiming the Serie A club sent scouts to monitor the full-back during Spain’s Under 21 match against Italy earlier in the week.
Although Juventus have identified AC Milan’s Mattia De Sciglio as their number one right-back target, Bellerin is also a potential candidate for the job.
However, Bellerin only signed a new long-term deal with Arsenal last year putting them in a strong position to keep the Spaniard’s services this summer.
