Arsenal interested in Juventus midfielder Arthur as Partey cover

Arsenal are interested in Juventus midfielder Arthur Melo.

Sky Italia says Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is keen for some reinforcements in midfield – particularly with Thomas Partey absent at the Africa Cup of Nations – and a loan move for Arthur has been discussed.

However, the Gunners are yet to make contact with the Serie A club about any deal.

It comes as a move for Lyon midfielder Bruno Guimaraes looks less likely, due to the £37.5m price-tag involved.

Arthur has previously been linked with a move to Tottenham, though that was before his switch to Italy in 2020.
