Latest reports in the British press suggest that Arsenal may be involved in a big swap deal this summer with La Liga giants Barcelona.
The Sun reports:
Hector Bellerin and Arda Turan set for swap as Barcelona spark transfer spree under new coach Ernesto Valverde after rivals Real won second consecutive Champions League title
Even though he’s been one of the best performers for Arsenal this season TFF believes that the club is going to really struggle to hold onto the brilliant 22-year-old Hector Bellerin. The Spain international who was played 3 times plays country since his debut in 2016 looks set for a move to his homeland at some stage and it appears a matter of when not if to this observer.
He been an absolute sensation at Arsenal especially over the last couple of seasons and it looks as if he’s got another 10 years right at the very top of the game. He reminds us somewhat of Danny Alves in terms of his ability to get up and down the wing and offer genuine attacking threat.
But this cloud could have a silver lining as Arsenal could swap him for the brilliant Asda Turan. Turan hasn’t been able to cement a place in the first XI at Barcelona but getting past Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar in that forward line was always going to be tough.
But he’s an adaptable player. Someone who can pop up at number 10 and in the midfield as well as playing effectively on the wng.
TFF definitely believes that Arsenal fans would appreciate him if he did join the club – even if he only has a few years left at the top of the game.
Arsenal fans – if Bellerin has to leave would you be happy to get Turan in?
