Arthur says “yes” to Arsenal, but Juventus make him wait

The Brazilian midfielder has agreed in principle to a move to Arsenal,but Juventus are currently blocking any potential switch.

The reason for that is because coach Massimo Allegri will not sanction any departures without an adequate replacement.

Having failed to impress since his arrival in Turin, Arthur has asked his new agent, Federico Pastorello, to find him a new squad during the January window.

Juventus chiefs have already stated that for the rest of this season they are only interested in loan signings with no obligation to buy as they try to reduce the transfer deficit.

The Gunners are aware that the Bianconeri are monitoring closely the situation regarding out of favour frontman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but this will not fill the void left by the departure of Arthur.

The Brazilian is surplus to requirements at the Allianz Stadium, the next two weeks of the transfer window will be key to deciding his future.
