Hector Bellerin’s agent has suggested that his client is considering a possible transfer to an Italian club.

Hector Bellerin is a product of La Masia product who was brought to Arsenal at the age of 16 by Arsene Wenger.

The 24-year-old Spanish right-back has only made six top-flight appearances for Arsenal so far this season.

Bellerin has only recently returned from a serious knee injury which kept him out for nine months.

His return to fitness is in the midst of a crisis and no permanent manager in place.

While he is not agitating for a move, if things don’t improve at the Emirates Stadium he may seek an alternative challenge.

His agent Albert Botines claims that there is interest in his client, but his focus right now is getting match fit.

In an interview reported by the Mirror, he said:

“At the moment he is focused on the team’s commitments, comes from a bad injury and is returning to his levels.”

“He likes Italy, the interest of an Italian club has been there but I can’t reveal it.”

“He has a long contract and it won’t be easy to take him away from Arsenal.”

“He is the vice-captain, we will see how the season will go.”

He has reportedly been a long term target for Juventus.
