Arsenal abandon talks with Juventus for Arthur?

by | Jan 26, 2022 20:47

Talks between Juventus and Arsenal for the Arthur Melo loan appear to have been abandoned due to the Premier League side’s chiefs refusing Edu’s request, claims The Athletic.

There were already multiple reports in Italy that we were seeing no progress at all in the negotiations over the last 48 hours.

Juve are only prepared to let Arthur leave on an 18-month loan with option to buy, or a six-month loan if there is an obligation to buy for circa €40m.

Now The Athletic maintain Arsenal technical director Edu was prepared to accept those terms for an 18-month loan, but when he asked the Premier League side’s financial chiefs, they refused.

The negotiations have now been essentially abandoned, with former Barcelona player Arthur remaining in Turin.

Instead, Juventus hope to off-load Rodrigo Bentancur to Aston Villa on a permanent transfer, although here too talks are stuttering over the €20-25m valuation of the Uruguay international.

    Two clubs that are in decline, whilst Don Marotta has already sealed the deal with Gosens.

    I am okay with this as an Arsenal fan. Not sure how much of an upgrade Melo is over what we have. decent player but not a game changer.

  5. Ravanelli

    Is it because Juve snagged Vlahovic when everyone was saying he’s going to Arsenal?

  6. Tom

    Lol that is why Dusan don’t want to go Arsenal bi like sh****t


    Arthur is damaged goods in the sense that he does not have a PRO athlete mentality.

    Rubentus know he has no future just by the way he prepares. Not giving at least 100% in training will lead him nowehere as a professional, that`s why Rube only want to get rid of him for good.

    @Eduardo, you been training with him have you?

    Samy, we are going to stay on top this year, another year as the league is already wrapped up. With Gosens and a few more add ons this summer, we are growing and will get stronger.

    Your club, the whipping boys and thrashed pub team of CL finals are not getting any better. You can rave about Vlahovic until the cows come home, but that midfield, an ageing defence and the worst left back in the game shows you are regressing.

    The attack is not your main problem despite scoring 1 goal every 10 games. It is the midfield stupid.
