Arsenal are facing even more January transfer window frustration with the latest news surrounding Juventus’ Arthur Melo not sounding too positive.
According to a report via the Express, Brazilian midfielder Arthur Melo is prepared to leave Turin for north London, but Juventus are pausing the potential loan deal until they sign a replacement.
The deal would provide much needed cover for a depleted midfield for Mikel Arteta and no doubt the aim was to get this over the line this week. However, this could now drag on with Juventus seeking a quality new signing of their own – providing much frustration for the Gunners in the short term.
Should Arthur Melo sign on current terms that have reportedly been agreed, Arsenal would pay all the 25-year-old’s wages, but no loan fee.
