Juventus ‘desperate’ for Arsenal to reignite interest in Arthur Melo and make transfer offer for Brazilian


JUVENTUS are hoping that Arsenal make another offer to sign Arthur Melo this summer, according to reports.

The midfielder, 25, was heavily linked with a move to the Emirates throughout January, but a deal never materialised.

However, the Gunners are still said to be considering a swoop with Juventus pushing for a sale.

According to Calciomercato, the Italian giants are desperate for Arsenal to make another bid.


Club chiefs are eager to offload his £4.3million-a-year wages before the start of the season, whether that be through a loan deal or a permanent transfer.

But Arsenal have already signed a new midfielder this summer, so they could be reluctant to place a suitable offer.
