Hector Bellerin is being lined up for a move to Barcelona this summer, according to reports.
Arsenal defender Bellerin’s future at the club has been in doubt with clubs overseas said to be tracking his progress.
Juventus were one of the clubs who had been keeping tabs on the right-back, but reports in Italy suggest they have now cooled their interest.
And TalkSport claim that the 22-year-old is now expected to make a move to the Nou Camp at the end of this season now that the path is clear for them to tie up a deal.
The Spanish giants had been heavily in for Bellerin last summer when they were desperately looking to sign a new right back.
But at the time Gunners boss Arsene Wenger blocked the move, insisting Bellerin stayed on in North London after he had signed his two-year deal to remain in charge.
Since then Barca’s interest is said to have cooled, with the club looking on course to reclaim the La Liga title this season.
But now the new report says they would be prepared to get a deal done this summer if it became known the full-back would be available.
Bellerin’s future at Arsenal remains unclear, having endured an inconsistent run of form this season and even been left out on occasions.
He is also understood to be fuming with Wenger at the way he was axed for last week’s defeat at Brighton just two hours before kick-off.
