Switzerland international, Stephan Lichtsteiner, is set to leave Juventus following a six-year stay at the club. According to reports, he is set to be replaced by attacking full-back Hector bellerin within the summer transfer window.

A wanted man

Multiple Italian sources have highlighted that juventus are incredibly interested in the speedy full-back, as due to his age he can be seen as a long-term replacement and hold this position for many years to come.

Furthermore, the Spanish defender has been made Juventus's number one target within the next transfer window.

However, if they are unable to secure the signature of the Spaniard, it is believed that Thomas Meunier of PSG and Sime Vrsaljko of Atletico Madrid are rumoured to be on the shortlist.

However, Juventus will have to make an incredibly attractive offer to prise the Spaniard away from the Gunners. Bellerin, 22, currently earns £100,000-per-week in North London and signed a six-and-a-half-year as recently as November 2016.

Unfortunately for Juventus, they're simply not in the same financial situation as Arsenal and are unable to pay such wages for a squad player such as Hector Bellerin. Paulo Dybala was one of Juventus's stand out players within recent years, however, he only receives within the region of £95,000-per-week.

To put that into perspective, Jesse Lingard earns £100,000-per-week.

Despite this, if Arsenal were to sell Bellerin it would provide a range of financial benefits for the North London club. Due to the time in which the Spaniard has left on his contract and the high demand for a player of his calibre, he wouldn't be sold for any less than £40m.

Taking into consideration that Bellerin is an academy graduate, the North London club would create a large amount of profit by selling the right-back. Furthermore, by selling a player such as Hector, it heavily reduces the Arsenal wage bill and makes the North London team a more financially healthy club.

How will this help Arsenal?

In addition to this, by re-using the money that would be received for this transfer, it aids other future transfers. Following the failure of the previous transfer window, Arsenal will re-attempt to sign the exciting forward Thomas Lemar.

The French striker has made it apparent that he wants to leave the Ligue 1 side and isn't providing the same performances in which he was capable of last season. Therefore, Monaco may become more keen to sell and either let him go in the upcoming transfer window or the summer.
