Freehub body for Shimano FH-RS470

My freehub body (I hope it's the correct term) looked like this
Spoiler
 



The mechanic cleaned it and greased it, but suggested that I buy a new one anyway, because I'll need it sooner or later. So which one should I buy? The bike's datasheet says SHIMANO "FH-RS470", 12 x 142 mm, but if I search for that I get the whole hub, while apparently I just need the body (which also means not having to remove all the spokes and putting them back on the new hub). Can anyone point me to a store in the EU where they sell this? I use the bike quite a lot (mostly for touring, commuting, and/or easy gravel) so, should there be various options, I wouldn't mind spending a bit more for something more durable, or faster.

Thank you in advance.

EDIT: Found the same exact part on bicikli.de Does it make sense to look further (for example to upgrade the bike)? Is this a reputable store?

Y3G898030 is the correct part #. The exploded view is NOT the right one for that hub. And this thread should obviously posted in 'bicycle mechanics' and not GD.

Yes, sorry for the mispost. I found two websites that sell the item, but for both shipping to Italy is impossible or very expensive.
