Arsenal wanted to sign Arthur Melo in the January transfer window as the midfielder struggles to shine at Juventus.
He is technically gifted, but seems to be wasting his abilities at the Italian club, which doesn’t play to his strength.
Mikel Arteta has done well in helping struggling players return to form, and he could have turned Arthur’s season around.
But Arsenal and Juventus couldn’t find an agreement, and he remained in Italy.
The Gunners have not given up on him, and Calciomercato is claiming he is also still interested in a move to the Emirates.
One of the reasons he wants the transfer is because he wants to play for a club where he is the “focus” of their playing system.
He is not getting that at Juve, and it might be much better at Arsenal if he makes the transfer.
Just Arsenal Opinion
Arthur is a very good player, and he showed his class while playing for Gremio and Barcelona.
However, Juve plays a system that doesn’t exactly favour a technical player like him, and that is one reason he has struggled at the club so far.
But we probably need to be careful about signing him and maybe start with a loan move before making his transfer permanent.
Rather keep Elneny
Rather keep Lokonga 😂😂
That’s a big NO from me.A crab.offers nothing.Also has attitude problems & a bit of a party boy by all accounts.We’re trying to clear all our deadwood not collect some more.
A hard pass from me. Arteta wants to get rid of the egotistical players, and Arthur perhaps is one.
Wants to be the focus of Arsenal playing? Based on his crab performances in Series A?
Perhaps instead of complaining he should find his role in the Juve team dynamic.
Whomever blessedly killed his loan deal to us will continue to kill any deal for this crab.
Leave this deadwood in Series A and find better, plenty better players out there.
Lol the bit where you say arteta brings out of form players back into form. Really? Pepe, Nketia,Xhaka
Melo is not what we need and thank goodness he’s not coming. Xhaka as our most senior arsenal player should be leading by example, not passing backwards and sitting on precarious one goal leads.
i dont see what this player is good at. Think he was always just a potential loan signing which is why we never got him. Juve wanted him gone on a permanent, but we weren’t obliging .
