Italian giants Juventus are interested in signing Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin but the huge price tag is keeping them in check.

It is being reported by Tuttosport that Juventus are very keen on signing Bellerin and the Spaniard remains one of their top transfer targets for the next summer. But the Turin based outfit have come to understand that they will have to shell out as much as £40 million if they wish to acquire the services of Hector. And this is the only area where Juve are said to be having second thoughts.

Juventus will most certainly make a move for the 22-year-old as the current season comes to a close but if Arsenal refuse to drop the price tag, then Juve will have no other option but to look elsewhere.

Bellerin joined Arsenal in 2011 from Barcelona’s La Masia academy and since then the right-back has established himself as one of the key figures in Wenger’s first-team setup. For the longest time though, Bellerin has been linked with a move back to Barcelona but nothing concrete has come out of that transfer gossip.
