With three midfield targets on the transfer shortlist, Arsenal is ‘discussing Arthur Melo loan deal.’

ARSENAL are on the lookout for a new midfielder, with Mikel Arteta and Edu prioritizing the position.

Arsenal have discussed a possible loan signing of Juventus midfielder Arthur Melo, according to reports, as they look to bolster their midfield options.

The Brazilian has faded from view during his time in Turin, having arrived in Europe with Barcelona after catching the eye with Gremio.

Barca signed Arthur from the South American club in 2018 before sending him to Juve in 2020 in exchange for Miralem Pjanic.

The Italian giants paid a whopping £66 million for his services, but his performances have not lived up to expectations.

With Juve looking to clear the decks, Arthur has been identified as a player who could leave if a suitable offer comes in.

Arsenal have discussed the possibility of signing Arthur on loan, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Gunners have yet to contact Juventus, with the deal still being discussed in the boardroom.

After losing Mohamed Elneny and Thomas Partey to the Africa Cup of Nations, Arsenal are looking to sign a central midfielder.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles has also joined Roma on loan, leaving Arteta with a dearth of midfield options.

According to Romano, Arsenal has three names on their radar as they plan their next move.

Edu admires Lyon’s Bruno Guimaraes, but a deal this month appears to be too difficult.

The reason for this is that the French club is expected to demand up to £40 million in exchange for a sale.

The Gunners have been linked with a move for Denis Zakaria of Borussia Monchengladbach in recent weeks.

Samuele Ricci, Empoli’s 20-year-old ace, is also said to be attracting admirers in north London.

Due to his stylistic similarities to Chelsea’s Jorginho, Ricci has been dubbed “little Jorginho” in Italy.

Arteta made it clear ahead of Arsenal’s FA Cup third-round tie against Nottingham Forest that the Gunners will spend this month if the opportunity presents itself.

“If it’s the right player, we can afford him, and he can do what we want, we’ll talk about it and make the best decision we can.”

Yes, we are.
