Arsenal is reportedly planning a summer move to secure the services of a 25-year-old Juventus midfielder this summer, according to reports.

The 25-year-old Brazilian, who joined Juventus from Barcelona after being used in a swap deal, has been in great form for the Serie A giants, and his performance has been able to attract interest from the Premier League, with Arsenal known to be a good fan of the South American playmaker. 

According to Calciomercato, Arsenal planned to sign the Brazilian in the January transfer window, but failed to sign him and are reportedly preparing a new bid to make a return for the Juventus playmaker this summer.

Arthur Melo joined Barcelona from the Brazilian side, Gremio and after spending two seasons with the Blaugrana he was used in exchange for Miralem Pjanic.

The Brazilian has been able to partake in 58 matches in all competition for Juventus and has been able to find the back of the net once and also provided an assist.
