Arthur agent ‘in talks’ with Arsenal

Arsenal are in talks with the agent of Juventus midfielder Arthur over a potential January loan move to the Premier League. The Gunners will be without Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny as both will feature in the AFCON.

Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport report that Arthur is looking to leave Juventus in the coming weeks.

The Brazilian has rarely featured for the Bianconeri this season and has slid down the pecking order.

Juve signed Arthur in 2020 in an exchange deal for Miralem Pjanic but the 25-year-old has struggled for a place.

According to Corriere, the Brazilian has changed agents and wants a January move. The report suggests that new agent Federico Pastarello has had ‘much more than a chat’ with Mikel Arteta’s side.

While an outright sale might be out of the question for now, Juve could be prepared to allow Arthur to leave on loan.
