Serie A giants Juventus are interested in signing Arsenal Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Partey and could offer Arthur in exchange, the Sun reports.
Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri is eager to bolster his side’s midfield, having failed to seriously contest the Serie A title race this term.
Allegri is reshaping Juve’s squad ahead of another push next season.
And according to AS, he sees Partey as a “strong” option to improve his side.
The Ghanaian has been in excellent form for the Gunners this term.
The 28-year-old is reportedly valued at around £30million – a drop on the £45m they paid Atletico Madrid for him in 2020 and the Old Lady are willing to sweeten the deal by throwing in midfielder Arthur.
Arsenal were strongly linked with the Brazilian in January, although a move failed to materialise.
Juventus chiefs believe that the former Barcelona ace could be the key to getting a deal done for Partey.
Arthur has started just 11 Serie A matches this season.
The Gunners are interested in a number of midfielders as they aim to bolster that position ahead of next season.
SunSport revealed that club bosses are confident of signing Youri Tielemans from Leicester for £40m.
While Monaco starlet Aurelien Tchouameni has also been linked.
Partey skippered the Black Stars of Ghana to qualify for the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
After struggling in his first season in the English topflight, Partey has been impressive so far this term.Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
