Barcelona preparing to have another go at signing Arsenal target
Hector Bellerin’s move to Barcelona is back on after the Catalans decided they can trade Arda Turan to the Gunners for the Defender.
Barcelona have been tracking Bellerin for a long time and are reportedly close to sealing a deal for him, but they will not be able to match Arsenal’s asking price at the moment.
The Gunners want £35 million for the defender, but Barca can only afford £21 million right now.
However, they have decided that they can offer Turkish international Arda Turan as part of the deal to take the Spaniard back to Camp Nou.
Arsenal want Arda Turan to replace Mesut Ozil, and they have been trying to sign him for a long time. They almost signed the player when he was at Atletico Madrid and asked about a loan move when he could not play for Barcelona because of a transfer embargo placed on them.
Turan has recently bought an apartment in London, and many speculate that this is an indication that he has plans to move to England in the nearest future.
