Arsenal pressing to sign Brazilian midfielder
Arsenal are regularly pressing to sign Juventus midfielder Arturo Melo this month, according to Calciomercato.
The Gunners are keen on landing a new central midfielder after loaning out Ainsley Maitland-Niles to Roma.
Arthur has been an undisputed target for the Gunners, but they have yet to convince the Bianconeri over a deal.
They are keen on signing him on loan, but a deal largely depends on whether the Bianconeri can land a replacement.
The Serie A giants have their sights on Borussia Monchengladbach's Denis Zakaria, but are yet to make a proposal to sign him.
The Swiss is available for just £6 million in the transfer market with his contract expiring at the end of the campaign.
The Gunners are continually pressing to sign Arthur, and a deal may go through if Zakaria makes the switch to Turin.
As things stand, there is a complete stall in negotiations, but a move could go through before the transfer window closes.
