According to reports making the round, Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu is willing to include three players in their offer for Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin.

New Barca coach Ernesto Valverde has told Bartomeu he wants Bellerin signed this summer – and the La Masia graduate is now a priority target for the Catalans.

The Spaniard is seen as a long-term replacement for Dani Alves who moved to Juventus last summer.

Arsenal rate Bellerin at £50 million and Bartomeu hopes to drive down the price by putting three players on the table in part exchange.

Midfield trio Rafinha, Denis Suarez and Arda Turan are the three players being offered to Gunners boss Arsene Wenger in exchange for Bellerin.

Turan, particularly, is the one Wenger wants, with Turkish sources suggesting personal terms have already been struck with Arsenal.
