Juventus makes contact with representatives of Arsenal defensive stud

Reports have emerged that Juventus is considering bringing Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin to Torino. The Mirror claims that the club and the player’s representatives have already begun discussions.

The current Serie A champs lost Dani Alves to ambitious Paris Saint-Germain last summer. Despite landing versatile full-back Mattia De Sciglio from AC Milan, Juve are yet to bring in a proper replacement.

It’s been reported elsewhere that executives from “The Old Lady” have been keeping tabs on the Spanish international for some time now. The club has gone through a major overhaul of their defense in the past year. In addition to the aforementioned Dani Alves, the club said goodbye to longtime defender Leonardo Bonucci – a deal which brought De Sciglio in.

Without the famous “BBC”, Juve’s defense has been unsteady in the early going this season. But it’s too early to gauge whether a deal can be done, with the ace a key man at the Emirates.
