Juventus are expected to offer one of two players in their bid to sign Hector Bellerin, according to reports in the Italian media.
The Serie A champions have been long-term admirers of the Spaniard but they don’t currently have the finances to pay the type of transfer fee the Gunners would demand for the fullback. That has led them to consider a part-exchange offer.
Winger Douglas Costa and midfielder Adrien Rabiot are believed to be the two names being looked at as possible candidates to be used in their summer bid for Bellerin.
Out of the two, Rabiot would probably be the most attractive option. The Frenchman has been on Arsenal’s radar for a number of years and is still only 25 years of age.
In contrast, Costa is 30 and has been struggling during a loan spell with Bayern Munich. He has been pursued by Manchester United before but the Gunners would be concerned about repeating the same mistake they made with Willian.
