Arsenal in boost as Juventus identify options to replace Arthur

Juventus have identified a couple of options to potentially replace Arthur, in case the Brazilian heads to Arsenal.

Gianluca di Marzio has reported that Juve are vigilant in the market to replace Arthur as they want to find a replacement before letting the midfielder leave this month.

They are in contact with Borussia Monchengladbach for Denis Zakaria and he is someone that they believe would be a cost-effective replacement for Arthur. There is also an intention to bring back young Nicolo Rovella from his loan stint at Genoa but before that, the Old Lady want to understand and know more about the extent of his injury that he sustained before Genoa’s 6-0 loss to Fiorentina.

It has been reported that new contact between Arsenal and Juve is expected by today, as the Gunners look to sign the ex-Barcelona midfielder on a loan till the end of the current campaign. Arthur featured for the Bianconeri in their game against Udinese recently.
