Juventus plan part-exchange deal for Bellerin

Juventus are prepared to propose an exchange deal for Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin this summer.



Bellerin has made over 225 appearances over the past eight years with the Gunners, but he has been linked with a summer exit.

Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona have been mentioned as suitable destinations, but Tuttomercato claims that the Bianconeri are also keen.

The Serie A holders have held a long-term interest in Bellerin and they initially attempted to sign him in the summer of 2016.

The Gunners are likely to demand around £26m for Bellerin, but it is claimed that the Bianconeri may seek to lower the price with a swap deal.

Andrea Pirlo's side will offer them the chance to sign either Adrien Rabiot or Douglas Costa, currently on loan at Bayern Munich, as part of the move.

Bellerin wanted to leave the Gunners during last summer's transfer window, but he was convinced to remain at the club for another season by Arteta.
