Arsenal will not allow Juventus transfer target Hector Bellerin to leave for less than their £27million asking price.
New Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo is believed to have made the Spaniard his first choice to fill the right-back slot this summer.
The 25-year-old has also been offered to Paris Saint-Germain, who are in urgent need of a right-back, with the Gunners willing to sell.
But they will not allow him to leave for less than the £27m they are asking for the former Barcelona youngster.
Mikel Arteta has made Cedric Soares’ loan move into a permanent one and several other defensive signings are being made.

And Bellerin and Ainsley Maitland-Niles are said to be among the defenders who have been made available to sell.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Pirlo has made Bellerin his number one choice but it is not clear how much the Old Lady are willing to pay.
