As if news that pesky Barcelona were set to end their chase for one of your stars wasn’t enough reason to celebrate, the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have ERUPTED at an additional tidbit.
Gunners star Hector Bellerin was yesterday touted as a potential replacement for Dani Alves at the Blaugrana.
Considering the fact the 21-year old defender is a life-long fan of the club and progressed through their academy, the fans propping up the bar sure were a tad nervy.
However, Spanish outlet Don Balon now claims the La Liga champions will look at cheaper alternatives, knowing the speedster will be very difficult to prize away from North London.
To that end, they are reportedly considering a move for Chelsea flop Juan Cuadrado, who has spent the last season on loan with Juventus.
Though the Colombian struggled at Stamford Bridge, he showed a wonderful ability to act as an attacking wing-back during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
They are thought to have tried to sign him in 2014 while he was with Fiorentina, though could have a better chance of sealing a deal considering the player’s standing in West London.
Who will finish higher next season, Chelsea or Arsenal?
