Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin could be set for a shocking transfer to cross-town rivals, Chelsea.
The Barcelona product has been at the London club for the past five years and according to express.co.uk could be set for a departure from the Emirates Stadium.
However, according to reports from the sport, Chelsea will look to sign the 23-year-old regardless of whether Conte stays at the club for next season.
The Italian’s future has been much debated all season, amid reports of an inevitable acrimonious departure from the club in the offseason.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are prepping up for the departure of long-term Manager Arsene Wenger and could seek to implement a major overhaul of the players so as to create space for targets sought after by its incoming manager. The reports also claim Bellerin could be one of those affected as the Spaniard’s development was clearly hampered under the tutelage of Arsene Wenger.
Although, the 23-year-old could already be seeking for a fresh start elsewhere. When recently asked at about his future, the Spaniard was mindful as he said.
