Arsenal have been approached by Juventus over the availability of Hector Bellerin, according to reports in Italy.

Juventus are believed to be on the hunt to sign a new right-back this summer and Italian publication Corriere dello Sport claim they have identified Bellerin as a potential target.

The report goes on to suggest that Arsenal are willing to do a deal with the Serie A champions but want at least £27million for the 25-year-old.

While Bellerin still has three-years left to run on his existing deal at the Emirates, the Spaniard is understood to be open to move but will leave it up to the club to decide.

However, due to Juventus’ financial constraints, the Italian giants must sell before they can pursue a move for Bellerin this summer, with Gonzalo Higuain, Sami Khedira and Blaise Matuidi reportedly all up for the chopping block.

Bellerin has struggled to regain full fitness and form following an injury-ridden season. But with Ainsley Maitland-Niles also nearing an Emirates exit, selling Bellerin without a replacement would not be an ideal move by the Gunners.
