Arsenal set £52.5m asking price for Man United target – report
Arsenal will demand a £52.5m fee for Hector Bellerin this summer, according to reports
Arsenal will demand a transfer fee of as much as £52.5m for Manchester United target Hector Bellerin, according to reports in Italy.
Italian outlet Tuttosport, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Gunners will not consider selling the Spain international for anything less than that price as the summer transfer window draws nearer.
The same story says that Manchester United have made an enquiry about Bellerin’s availability ahead of the summer transfer window.
The article also claims that Juventus hold a strong interest in signing Bellerin this summer, and that a number of Arsenal stars could face uncertain futures if the Gunners fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League by winning the Europa League this season.
Arsenal are said to have set a £52.5m asking price for Bellerin, but the article says that even that number may not be enough to tempt them into selling the Spanish right-back this summer.
Bellerin has scored three goals and made two assists in all competitions for Arsenal so far this season.
The Gunners are currently in sixth place in the Premier League table, with their best hope of qualifying for the Champions League coming through winning the Europa League this term.
