Not very active on the transfer market this winter, the trend could quickly change at Arsenal. According to our information, the Gunners want a midfielder and the priority is called Arthur. Negotiations are taking place with Juventus who, for their part, are thinking of Bruno Guimarães.
Despite a surprise FA Cup defeat against Nottingham (1-0) last weekend, Arsenal are going through a good period in the league. Attractive in the game for a few weeks, the teammates of Alexandre Lacazette are fourth in the standings. In order to secure a qualifying place for the next Champions League, management wishes to recruit a midfielder.
With the absence for the African Cup of Nations of Thomas Partey in the midfield, this position is deprived of one of its best elements. According to information from RMC Sport, the leaders have made Arthur (25) their priority for this month of January. Negotiations with Juventus for a loan are advanced.

Juventus think about Guimarães
Very promising during his two-year stay in Barcelona, the Brazilian is struggling to confirm in Italy. Often injured and with seven Serie A games on the clock, the 25-year-old does not seem to be in the plans of Massimiliano Allegri. The Arsenal opportunity would be Arthur’s way to revive. This track takes priority over the one leading to Bruno Guimarães, whose profile also appeals to Arsenal.
In the event of Arthur’s departure, Juventus have activated the market to try to find a replacement. A track leads to … Bruno Guimarães. But Juve had not planned big expenses and Olympique Lyonnais does not intend to let go of his Brazilian unless a large sum.
