Arsenal is said to have made move for Barcelona’s right-back Sergino Dest amid speculation over Hector Bellerin’s future.
Bellerin emerged as Arsenal’s first-choice right-back under Arsene Wenger, Unai Emery, and Mikel Arteta, but lost the job to Calum Chambers at the end of last season.
As a result, Bellerin is reportedly looking to move to Inter Milan, and Arteta will be looking to replace the Spaniard during a busy summer of spending.
The Gunners have been linked with a move for Norwich City’s Max Aarons as a replacement for Bellerin, but according to Sport, the Gunners have already touched out with Barca over a possible £25.7m deal for Dest.
The report adds that Bayern Munich and Juventus have shown interest in the former Ajax man, but he has no plans to leave Barcelona after he becomes a regular under Ronald Koeman.
