Arsenal have lost several players during the past few weeks following the departures of names such as Alexis Sanchez and Laurient Koscielny, but the exodus is not going to stop any time soon.

Another name that seems likely to leave the Emirates side is Hector Bellerin. The Spanish right-back has been one of the best players for The Gunners this season and he is known for being one of the top full-backs in Europe, but his time in the Premier League could come to an end sooner than later.

According to a report from The Guardian, the Spanish international is keen to look for new challenges in the near future. Several reports have linked the former Barcelona youngster with a move to Juventus next season.

The Old Lady are looking for a long-term replacement for Stephan Lichtsteiner, and it seems Bellerin would check all the boxes. They aren’t alone on the race to acquire the Arsenal star, however, as Barcelona are also keen to re-sign their former youngster since neither Sergi Roberto nor Nelson Semedo have been very good on the RB role.

Last summer the Old Lady saw a deadline day bid for the 22-year-old rejected, but things might change this time since Juventus will push harder knowing “it will take at least £45 million to give Arsenal a decision to make.”

Bellerin is under contract until 2022.
