Arsenal willing to sell Bellerin to Barcelona in deal which involves Turkey international star
Barcelona are keen to sign Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin according to reports in Spain.
Spanish outlet Don Balon report that Arsenal are open to selling their young star at the right price.
Per the source, Arsenal want both Arda Turan and Marc Cucurella included in a part-exchange deal which would see Bellerin go in the opposite direction.
Turan has found himself of the fringes of Barcelona’s squad and has been tipped for a summer exit. Cucurella meanwhile is one of Barcelona’s highly rated youngsters.
Don Balon go onto state that transfer talks between Barcelona regarding Bellerin have been ongoing for some time.
Barcelona could face competition from Real Madrid and Chelsea in their pursuit of the Spanish full-back according to the Daily Star.
Turan has struggled to nail down a regular starting role under Luis Enrique this season due to injury problems.
Enrique has been a staunch defender of Turan and played a key role in signing the attacking midfielder from Atletico Madrid in 2015.
With Enrique leaving at the end of the season it could signal an uncertain future for Turan at Barca.
The Turkey international’s best performances have come out on the left-wing this season. Turan has 13 goals and seven assists to his name after 30 games.
