Juventus start efforts to land Arsenal star for less than €15M

Hector Bellerin will be the subject of interest again in the summer, especially as Arsenal remains relaxed about offering him a new deal.

A report yesterday claimed that he would be open to leaving the Emirates so that he can test himself in another competition.

The Spaniard is one of the longest-serving members of the current Arsenal team and he is one of the club’s assistant captains.

But they will have to show some commitment towards him to keep him from the clutches of other European teams.

Some of them have already started making plans to land him with Todofichajes reporting that Juventus is confident that they will get him since they can offer a better contract than Barcelona who has been his long-term admirers.

The Italians are looking to strengthen both their full-back positions and they have identified Bellerin as the perfect right-back for them.

The Spaniard has served the Gunners for 10 years and the report says because of this Arsenal will accept less than €15M for his signature.

The Gunners signed Cedric Soares as a backup to Bellerin and he might be next in line to take over that position.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles can also play there and they could keep him when he returns from his loan spell at West Brom.

    Less than 15 million? Nope.
    Smoking that Anfield stuff. Covid hurt club finances, yes. Covid made management dumber than $h!t? Nope.

    25 million at least or jog on.

    1. John Ibrahim says:

      He can leave for free in a years time

  2. Armoury says:

    He should leave because he’s not being appreciated at Emirates just like Mkhitaryan

    Sounds about right to be honest.

    If you take into consideration he’s been dead average for years now(barring the odd game) and Arsenal’s horrific selling history I don’t see us getting more than 20mil for him.

    Again a perfect example of Arsenal holding onto a player to long until their value is low. Should have sold him last year after performances had dropped but his value was decent.

    This whole scenario is the exact reason we’ll never be a top team again, unless we change our policy of:

    -keeping players too long
    -desperation of holding onto a player because we are “scared” we won’t find someone else
    -accepting mediocre performances for extended periods

    I think our biggest problem is accepting and keeping half decent players for years because they aren’t terrible. Bellerin is a great example of this. He’s not bad at all but he rarely changes a draw/loss into a win for us. A club like Arsenal needs game changers players, but we accept ‘just decent’.

    Same with Elneny, guy is a decent player but he’ll almost never win a game for us or lift the players around him. Difficult to justify selling these kind of players because they don’t do much wrong. In my opinion these are the kind of players stopping us progressing.

    I just hope we get a proper right back who defends and stops crosses coming into the box. He has not been doing this for a few seasons. Neto and Grealish should have finished him off but no, he is still here attacking and leaving us exposed regularly. Without cover he is distinctly below average. He is great galloping forward but as a wannabe right wingback no way!

  5. Ba Elkhirsawy says:

    There is no point in selling a starting homegrown player at that price unless he is not renewing, wants out and will walk for free.

    With that said, he is a good player but isn’t irreplacable.

  6. Reggie says:

    I will be surprised if we get offered that much for him.

  7. Joe. S says:

    Not worth more than 20million, is he? As long as the.clib has a suitable replacement in mind, then go for it. This change would be good for both parties. Cedric is not the man though. He is a ” useful ‘ player but I doubt if he can rise above that. As we witnessed this morning, Arsenal are crying out for someone with class to cover that position.
