According to Tutto Juve, Juventus could be open to allowing Arthur Melo to leave the club if a reasonable offer arrives in this window. The Serie A giants are willing to accept a loan move for the midfielder with a buy option, and Arsenal have reportedly reignited their interest in the Brazilian. Arthur Melo was close to signing for Arsenal in January, only for Juventus to disagree with the Gunners over the loan proposal on the table. As a result, the midfielder stayed back at the Allianz Stadium. However, he is surplus to requirements in Turin as Massimiliano Allegri moves in a different direction with the choice of players at his disposal.
Youri Tielemans is also an option, with Arsenal having chased the Leicester City star since January. He reportedly remains keen on signing for Arsenal and is ready to snub the advances of other interested sides. But, the Gunners are keeping their options open, with Arthur’s name also under consideration. Arthur certainly holds qualities that attract Arteta, as the Brazilian ticks many boxes needed for the left central midfield position. The same goes for Tielemans and Lucas Paqueta, who is available for €40 million after Lyon recently slashed their huge asking price. Arshavin has urged the Gunners to splash the cash on the midfielder this summer.
