Arsenal have received a boost in their pursuit of Juventus midfielder Arthur Melo as the player is keen on joining the London giants in the ongoing transfer window.
Brazil international has become surplus to requirements at Allianz Stadium following the winter signing of Zakaria and the comeback of Pogba on a free transfer earlier this year.
Allegri does not see a place for Arthur in his squad and is ready to move him on this summer. The Gunners, who had shown serious interest in signing Melo in the winter window, are back in contention for the midfielder.
Arsenal have made some smart additions this summer but the Spanish coach continues to be on the lookout for another midfielder despite the signing of Fabio Vieira and Zinchenko.
Arthur Melo and Youri Tielemans are the two footballers to have been strongly linked with a move to Arsenal.
And the Gunners are now seemingly set to act on their interest in the former, with recent reports suggesting that a formal offer is being prepared to be sent to Juventus.
Now, the update from Marcello Chirico reaffirms those claims while also adding that the Brazilian midfielder is keen on joining the London giants this summer.
The 25-year-old midfielder has endured a difficult time in Italy since his transfer from Barcelona in the summer of 2020 in a complex deal that saw Pjanic this way.
Arthur is only an alternative to 25 year old Youri Tielemans or Lucas Paqueta.
