Italian giants Juventus are keeping an eye on Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin, and are plotting a move for the player in January, according to the Italian media.

The Champions League finalists lost Dani Alves to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer and failed to replace him, with the Serie A side seeing Bellerin as an ideal replacement.
