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.
