Juventus request ludicrous transfer swap to release Arthur to Arsenal

Arsenal have been strongly linked with a move to sign Arthur Melo from Juventus this month, but the Italians are now claimed to have requested that Thomas Partey be included in the deal.

The Gunners are in need of midfield reinforcements, as are the Old Lady it would seem, and we are believed to have held talk over the potential signing of the Brazilian midfielder, who has largely been left on the sidelines this term.

While we were believed to be hoping to strike a loan deal, there are numerous reports claiming alternatives, and the latest rumour is that Juve will allow Arthur to make the switch if they include Partey in such a deal. The Metro cites Italian sources for the latest snippet of info, and if this is what has come from Italy, then they are basically just playing games.

They must know that there is no possibility of us allowing Partey to leave at any price this term, and they should also know that we are looking to strengthen our numbers through the middle, something that would only be temporarily achieved if Arthur came in this month while the Ghanaian was still away at the AFCON.

I can’t tell you whether there is any truth in Juve’s request, but I would be extremely annoyed if Arsenal entertained the idea in any shape or form, and in truth, I don’t even rate Arthur as half the player that Thomas is.

  1. LOL do they think were after Arthur because he’s so good? Chuckle.. he’s to be here just to make up numbers..

    Hopefully next summer we can sell Xhaka and Partey on, who both have been disappointments..

    1. Partey has not been a disappointment.

      Injuries have slowed him down.

      I wish Arsenal can bid for Ndidi in the summer to partner Partey in midfield

      1. Yes Partey has been disappointing. £45 million, 250k wages, he was expected to be the anchor of this team.

        No one seriously can say he hasnt been a disappointing for the expectations we had? He has not been consistent at all. Injuries or not.

  2. The fact is, I dont think that deal will be possible.consider what Arsenal are into.Moroever i dont even fancy Arthur melo as a long term deal for Arsenal.just a loan deal🤣😂

  3. And majority of people here said Coutinho is finished and had nothing to offer anymore! Delusion of the highest order!


      I am sure you are very young!

  4. Time to end talks with Juve then, obviously they aren’t taking the offer seriously.

    Even suggesting Partey in a swap is such a joke. I wish them the best with Arthur and his wages.

  5. if that were the case, which I seriously doubt, it might be the most ridiculous ask I’ve ever heard…I wouldn’t even contemplate conducting business with anyone who even raised such a ludicrous notion

  6. Arsenal should drop the interest. Besides Arthur, has joined Aaron Ramsey among the top three biggest flops of last year in the Serie A. Do you really think he will be better in the PL?
    Unfortunately Arsenal have lost precious time in pursuing interest in him.
    Move on.

  7. Ha ha ha.Hilarious.What they smoking over at the old lady? This is why it’s almost impossible to deal with Italian clubs because they are skint.
    Melo is just another caballos. A crab.Forget & go for Wijnaldum if we can only do a loan.
