The latest on Arsenal’s pursuit of Juventus star Arthur

The latest on Arsenal’s pursuit of Juventus star Arthur

Arsenal need a midfielder

Most Arsenal fans will likely agree that their club currently need to strengthen in two key areas.

These are at centre-forward and in central midfield.

Whilst both issues will need to be addressed in 2022, it has become obvious of late that central midfield represents the more pressing of the two.

Both Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny are away at the African Cup of Nations, potentially until the final which will take place on February 6th.

Elsewhere, the Gunners have loaned Ainsley-Maitland Niles to AS Roma for the remainder of the campaign.

This leaves just an inexperienced Albert Sambi Lokonga and Granit Xhaka as senior central midfield options at the club.

And, just last night, Xhaka proved once again that he is a wreckless individual that cannot be relied upon when it really counts – this time getting himself sent off after just 24 minutes at Liverpool.

This leaves Arsenal with only Lokonga as a senior central midfield option for the club’s upcoming meetings with Tottenham and Liverpool..

Arthur to Arsenal latest

So, it is fairly obvious that Arsenal need to strengthen in the middle of the park, especially if Elneny leaves in the summer when his contract expires.

And the north Londoners appear to be aiming to do so with Juventus man Arthur, who has been linked this week.

Now, Fabrizio Romano has provided an update on the situation, stating that negotiations between Arsenal and Juventus for Arthur will continue in the coming hours and that the former are offering a loan deal which covers the Brazilian’s full salary until June, with no obligation to buy included.

Romano does, however, add that Juventus will not accept until they find a replacement for Arthur.
