Barcelona will go for Azpilicueta if Bellerin deal falls through

Cesar Azpilicueta

Barcelona plan to sign Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin, but keep a back up option in Cesar Azpilicueta in case the Gunner’s right back decides to stay in north London.

After Dani Alves joined Juventus on a free transfer, the Blaugrana found themselves in trouble filling the right-back spot. Hector Bellerin,22, is great long-term option for the Catalan club, however, if Arsene Wenger manages to persuade the young Spaniard to stay at Arsenal, Barca will go for Chelsea’s Cesar Azpilicueta.

Marca reports that, Barcelona recieved the green light from Azpi’s representatives.

Real Sociedad’s Alvaro Odriozola is another option.

The 21-year-old right-back has a 30 million release clause.
