Arsenal getting closer to signing midfielder after his club identify replacement

Arsenal has been handed a boost in their bid to sign Arthur Melo this month, as Juventus looks to replace the Brazilian.

Arthur hasn’t been as good as the Old Lady wants him to be since he moved to the club.

He remains one of the finest midfielders in Europe, but he struggles to shine under Max Allegri. A change of club could help him return to his best form.

Arsenal is interested in a January loan move for him, but Sky Sports Italia says Juve is reluctant to allow the Brazilian to leave without a replacement.

They have now identified Chelsea’s Ruben Loftus-Cheek as a suitable replacement for the former Barcelona man.

Loftus-Cheek is struggling to get game time at Stamford Bridge, and he could join the likes of Tammy Abraham and Ainsley Maitland-Niles in Serie A.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Arthur will probably provide the technical skill and experience Arsenal needs in midfield.

Mikel Arteta has done well in the transfer market so far. If he has identified the Brazilian as a player who can deliver for his team, then we can trust his judgement.

If Arthur comes on loan and impresses as Martin Odegaard did, he could become a permanent member of our first team.

  1. We should get Arthur as he’s class and would be a great asset to Arsenal , don’t know if it will happen within wanting loftus cheek, but will Chelsea part with him plus Chelsea have players that can’t get a game in midfield, so here’s hoping arteta can pull this loan off 🙏

  2. I’ve done my extensive research on Arthur – scrolled through comments from Twitter experts and poured over endless youtube clips.

    Depending on who you chose to believe, he is either a lethal hybrid of Carloza’s mecurial dribbling skills and Pirlo’s ability to pick out a long range pass OR a toxic mixture of Ramsey’s brittleness and Xhaka’s clumsy tackling and lack of pace.

    I think I might have to defer to Edu and Arteta on this one.

    1. according to a former coach and Striker at Barca he’s a hindrance on the pitch, from an offensive capacity, due to his propensity to play sideways football…we already have plenty of those types of players on staff, along with a manager who has far too frequently opted for a more negative brand of football when he has the selection options required to pursue this course of action…for me this is a very worrisome proposition, so I hope it doesn’t come to fruition

  3. Arteta has silenced my criticism of his signings. He can buy a cripple & he will turn up a good signing.
