Transfer: Brazilian star, Melo to become Arsenal’s first January signing

1 week ago 23
Juventus midfielder, Arthur Melo wants to move to Arsenal on loan until the end of the season.
Arsenal want to add to their midfield options this January transfer window and Mikel Arteta has made this clear.

And potential additions include Bruno Guimaraes, Yves Bissouma and Gini Wijnaldum, who are all heavily linked with moving to the Emirates in recent days.

Arsenal are said to be focusing their attention on Arthur and want to have the Brazilian on a temporary deal.

A move to Arsenal has become a realistic escape route for the out-of-favour midfielder and discussions are now at an advanced stage.

Sky Sports reports that Arthur is willing to secure a six-month switch to the Emirates to boost his minutes.

The 25-year-old is hopeful a successful loan spell in England could resurrect his chances of being recalled by Brazil.

Juve are expected to make a final decision on Arthur’s future following their Supercoppa final clash with Inter Milan on Wednesday.
