According to Cadena Ser, Arsenal are in talks with Juventus over the £44m sale of Hector Bellerin in this summer’s transfer window.
Bellerin, who is valued at £36m by transfermarkt.co.uk, was strongly linked with a return to Barcelona last summer, but ultimately stayed at the Emirates Stadium.
The 23-year-old’s form this season has been called into question by the Arsenal supporters, and it appears that he could now leave the Gunners ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.
The Arsenal fans have been reacting to the transfer rumour, and it would be fair to say that there are some differing opinions on the situation.
Indeed, whilst there are those who would be happy to sell Bellerin for £44m, there are also plenty who think that it would be a huge mistake to part with the right-back.
Bellerin has made 44 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners this season, but there is no question that his form has been inconsistent.

He only said in a video last week he asked for the number 2 shirt. Doubt this story has any truth

Awful move by us if true. Must keep him at all costs.

No chance. @HectorBellerin still an Arsenal player but will be working under Allegri though.
