Arsenal are set to experience the butterfly effect of Dani Alves leaving FC Barcelona. The Brazil international has left the Catalan club after deciding that he needed a new challenge and joined Juventus.
This means that the Barcelona are without a recognized right back at the moment and are looking for a suitable replacement. They are thought to be considering Chelsea’s Cesar Azpilicueta but some sources are mentioning that the Blaugrana could come knocking on the Arsenal door as well. The target? Hector Bellerin.
The Spaniard is a product of La Masia Academy and given an offer, it may be very difficult for Bellerin to reject Barcelona. We have witnessed a similar situation with Cesc Fabregas last time Barcelona wanted a player from Arsenal and Arsene Wenger will be wise to take preventive measures. According to Express sports, the Gunners are already discussing a possible contract extension with Bellerin in order to tie him down at Emirates.
