Arsenal are reportedly in talks with Juventus star Arthur’s agent to bring him to the club on loan in January.
The Brazilian midfielder has played just 10 games for Juve this season and is reportedly looking to quit to start his career.
The 25-year-old is so inclined to move away from Turin that he has turned to agents elsewhere to help him negotiate a deal.
Arthur is now represented by Federico Pastorello, who, according to Corriere dello Sport, has been in contact with the Gunners to see if they would be willing to take on his client.
The talks seem to be going well and the CDS claims that both the sides have gone beyond the negotiation stage.
If Pastorello and the Gunners can reach an agreement on Arthur, it is unlikely that Juve will stand in the way of the midfielder’s move as they could save money on his salary for the rest of the season.
And if the Gunners get their way, Arthur’s Old Lady teammate Dejan Kulusewski could also be on Emirates’ way.
Mikel Arteta’s side are reportedly keen on the 21-year-old and are set to fly their representatives to Turin to seal the deal.

Although negotiations could be put on hold as the Gunners only want to pay £25m plus £4.2m add-on for the striker, Juve are believed to be for a fee closer to £34m.
Kulusevski also had a rough time at Juve this season, with boss Max Allegri only using him as a deputy from time to time.
North London could be an attractive destination for Sweden as they are likely to be given a key role in Arteta’s side, with strikers Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang both on the verge of leaving the Gunners in January.
Lacazette’s contract with the Gunners expires next summer and he is yet to sign a new deal.
While Aubameung was relegated from Arteta’s first team earlier this month for disciplinary violations.
The Gabon national was also stripped of his captaincy and the Gunners are reportedly planning to oust the fallen hero in the new year.
