Italian champions Juventus have been put off making a move for Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin due to his £40m asking price, according to a report.
The Spain international, under contract with the Gunners until 2022, was linked with a surprise exit from the Emirates Stadium earlier this month.
Bellerin has cemented regular football in North London since arriving in 2011 and remains part of boss Arsene Wenger’s long-term plans, but it has been rumoured that Juve were prepared to test the Frenchman’s resolve.
A bid is not likely to be forthcoming next year, however, as Tuttosport suggests that Arsenal will not allow the full-back to leave for anything less than £40m.
The report claims that Juve will continue to monitor the situation ahead of next summer, though they may be forced to turn elsewhere.
