Juventus are reportedly plotting a double swoop for Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin and Paris Saint-Germain’s Angel Di Maria in January as they look to claim an unprecedented seventh consecutive Serie A title.
Bellerin, 22, is under contract at the Emirates until 2022 but questions were raised over his long-term future last summer amid a heavy pursuit by Barcelona.
The Old Lady are also thought to have held talks with the defender’s representatives at the time and, according to TMW, the Serie A side will make a fresh attempt to lure him to Italy when the transfer window reopens.
Di Maria, meanwhile, is said to be Juve’s “dream signing” and will be their top target in the mid-season market, with a fee of £50m thought to be enough to secure his signature.
The 29-year-old – formerly of Manchester United – has lost his place in the PSG side following the world-record arrival of Neymar in Paris over the summer and is also being courted by several clubs in the Premier League and Chinese Super League.
Juve have won the last six Serie A titles in a row but are facing a more competitive battle this season and currently trail Napoli by one point at the summit with 12 games played.
