Juve midfielder Arthur wants a move to Arsenal this transfer window according to several reports. The Brazilian playmaker could bolster our paltry midfield options to about one if he joins with everyone else either injured, away at AFCON, suspended or all three.

Juve boss Max Allegri is reportedly reluctant to let Melo go and wants an alternative player before he releases him, yet reports coming out of Italy say the player himself is pushing for a move as he doesn’t get much playing time.

The deal is expected to be a season-long loan rather than a permanent deal although Juventus are thought to want clauses added for a longer agreement, and there are claims that the deal will happen over the next week or two.

It’s thought that ex-Arsenal player Aaron Ramsey could also be leaving Turin soon, and Chelsea’s Ruben Loftus-Cheek is being linked with a move to Juve.


Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that centre back Pablo Mari will join Udinese on loan for the rest of the season. We have plenty of players knocking about to fulfil all of our fixtures, so one less player shouldn’t make any difference, it’s not like we have called any games off recently or anything like that.
