Mikel Arteta planning move for €35m-rated Brazilian star

Arsenal has reportedly emerged as a potential destination for Juventus’ Arthur.

The star missed the start of the term due to an injury and after regaining full fitness two months ago, the player has only one start each in Serie A and the UEFA Champions League.


Lack of playing time at the Turin outfit has convinced the 25-year-old midfielder to look for a new club in the January market and this was revealed by his entourage, Federico Pastorello, earlier this week.

Calciomercato now report the Brazil international earns €5.5 million per year, which makes Arthur affordable for only a couple of clubs across Europe.

I Bianconeri are keen to cut ties with him and Aaron Ramsey, so that they can make space in the roster and lower their salary budget to make fresh faces next month.

The report’s title states Federico’s new mission is to take his client away from Massimiliano Allegri’s side and there are contacts with Arsenal and Sevilla.

With Mikel Arteta’s side in the picture for Arthur, the Old Lady are open to everything to let the South American leave.

In other words, the Italian giants are ready to make it easy for interested teams to sign the player, so much so that, they’re willing to sanction his transfer on a long-term loan deal.
