Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin wanted in Italy

The agent of Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has revealed a club in Italy is interested in signing the full-back.

Bellerin made his first Premier League appearance in 10 months in Arsenal’s recent two-goal league loss at Leicester, following on from a serious injury.

Alberto Botines was speaking about Bellerin, who has only just returned from a serious knee injury and who has previously been linked with a move to Atletico Madrid.

“At the moment, he’s focused on the team's commitments,” Botines told Sky Sport Italia, as cited by our sister site Football Italia.

“He comes from a bad injury and is returning to his usual level. He likes Italy, there’s already been interest from an Italian club but I can’t reveal it.

“He has a long contract and it won’t be easy to take him away from Arsenal, he’s their vice-captain.

“We’ll see how the season goes.”

The 24-year old, who spent time as a youth player at Barcelona before moving to the Gunners, has four years left on his contract in North London.
