Arsenal are prepared to allow Hector Bellerin to leave the club this summer, according to reports in Italy.
The Spanish right-back has been with the Gunners since making the move from Barcelona in 2011, making his professional debut for the club in September 2013.
Bellerin has been linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium, though, with Juventus reportedly targeting the defender.
According to Calciomercato, via Sport Witness, the Italian giants are interested in signing the 26-year-old in the summer.
It’s been claimed that during recent talks with the Gunners, Bellerin received “the green light” to move once the season concludes.
The report goes onto mention that Arsenal will allow the Spaniard to leave if they receive an offer in the region of €20-25million.
The right-back’s future at the Emirates looks uncertain and with just over two years remaining on his contract in north London, Arsenal could be keen on generating a fee for his services.
Recent reports suggest just that and if the club can get around €25m for the Barcelona academy product, then the money could be used to fund Arteta ‘s dream summer.
Arsenal’s on-loan midfielder Martin Odegaard has been linked with a permanent switch to the Gunners, but his contract does not have an option to buy for Arteta’s side.
Odegaard has impressed in recent weeks but as it stands, he looks set to return to Real Madrid once his temporary deal has expired.
The 22-year-old would like to stay at Arsenal beyond the end of this season, football.london understands and the potential Bellerin money could be used to try and persuade Madrid in allowing him to leave the Spanish capital.
Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma has also been the centre of speculation ahead of this summer, with a close friend of the 24-year-old’s telling football.london that he would choose Arsenal over any other Premier League club.

Norwich City star Emi Buendia was on the Gunners’ shortlist of potential creative midfield signings back in December, football.london reported – and they could still return for him in the summer transfer window.
Any of the aforementioned apparent transfer targets could all be visited in the summer and if Arsenal can generate over £20m for Bellerin, then that would certainly help.
