Hector Bellerin is a man in demand as Manchester United become the latest club to be linked with the Arsenal full-back, Spanish news outlet Sport understands.
It was believed Barcelona dropped their long-term interest in the 23-year-old last summer when they brought in Nelson Semedo from Benfica instead, but now Juventus allegedly remain interested ever since they rivalled the La Liga giants for his signature, report the Metro.
The Serie A champions are now reportedly weighing up a €40 million offer for Bellerin, as per ESPN, but it also expected that United and Chelsea will compete for his signature too.
With Arsene Wenger soon set to depart, it is being suggested that rivals are looking to take advantage of the uncertainty that surrounds the Emirates. They think signing Bellerin at the start of the transfer window would achieve that.
Bellerin doesn’t exactly strike me as the sort of full-back Mourinho usually finds himself attracted to, considering his shortcomings defensively. He’s good going forward but I wouldn’t fancy him in the final 20 minutes of a game when our backs are against the wall, with a piece of silverware on the line.
But, hey, that’s just my opinion! Mourinho is the boss and if he fancies Bellerin so be it.
