According to transfer insider Dean Jones, Arsenal are considering a move for Juventus midfielder Arthur Melo this summer.
The Gunners have been in the market for a midfielder for a while, with Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans being one of their reported targets. However, the transfer expert believes that a deal for Melo will be more financially feasible for the north London outfit.
Melo joined Juventus from Barcelona in 2020. The 26-year-old midfielder has appeared in 63 matches across competitions for the Serie A side since his arrival.
As per Jones, the Brazil international has attracted interest from various Premier League clubs, including Everton.
Speaking on The Done Deal Show, Jones said (via HITC):
Referring to Melo’s situation, he added:
Finally, with regards to the Islington club’s interest in the Brazil international, he further went on to say:
Arsenal have had a productive transfer window so far. The Gunners have signed Gabriel Jesus, Oleksandr Zinchenko, and Fabio Vieira, among others.
Former Premier League footballer Tony Cascarino has showered Gunners midfielder Martin Odegaard with praise. The retired Chelsea striker believes the Norway international resembles Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne on the pitch.
Cascarino also gave credit to manager Mikel Arteta for retaining the 23-year-old talent last summer. Odegaard initially joined the Gunners on loan in January 2021. The Norwegian only signed a permanent deal last summer after Arteta recognized his potential.
Speaking to TalkSPORT, the former Ireland international said (via Football.London):
Odegaard has enjoyed a brilliant start to the 2022-23 season, scoring three goals in the Gunners’ opening four fixtures. The 23-year-old played a crucial role in the north London side’s 2-1 comeback against Fulham on August 27, scoring the equalizer.
