As you might have heard through the numerous stories that have been published on the subject: Arsenal want Juventus’ Arthur.

The Brazilian had been struggling for game time under Max Allegri, and the Gunners, wanting another midfielder, had turned their attention to the player.

We use the past tense there because, over the past few games, the Italian manager has given his player more minutes, which has made matters a little bit more complicated for Arsenal.

While Gazzetta dello Sport on Wednesday claimed the player was still ‘pressing to pack his bags’ and head to London, believe he might have to hold off on that for the time being.

Looking at the situation with the information they have gathered, the website explain that ‘Arthur is no longer considered an outgoing player’, and his manager is ‘very happy with the Brazilian’s work and growth’.

Despite this, never say never in the transfer market, but while ‘contacts with Arsenal have been frequent these days, the agreement on figures and the formula is still missing’, which is, as they put it, ‘no small detail’.

It’s made clear the Serie A side wanted ‘more guarantees from the Gunners’, but, should Arthur be given the green light to leave, it’s stated Arsenal ‘remain the option that seems to convince’ the player ‘the most’.

The bottom line, however, is Juventus are ‘in no hurry to get rid of the Brazilian, but the London track remains one to be kept under control’.
