Arthur Melo’s potential move to Arsenal continues to be up in the air, with several factors making the deal difficult.

For over a week it’s been reported in Italy that the Brazilian is keen on signing for the Gunners, and it’s just a case of the London club agreeing a deal with Juventus.

TMW take a look at the situation, and they explain that talks will resume on Monday, as those involved try to bring the situation to a conclusion, one way or the other.

Whilst it’s again stated that Arthur seems willing to sign for Mikel Arteta’s side, it’s also pointed out that he hasn’t directly inform Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri about this. The boss of the Turin club feels he has a place for the midfielder in his side, and that’s why there’s been talk of needing a replacement in.

There’s also the structure of the potential deal, and it’s again insisted Juventus would be looking for an 18-month loan, perhaps with a purchase obligation at the end of the period.

This isn’t only the wish of the Serie A side, but of Arthur too, with the player wanting longer term stability rather than a deal until the end of the season.
