Is Arthur playing his way into staying at Juventus?

January 21, 2022 - 10:30 am

Juventus is open to offloading Arthur Melo in this transfer window and he has serious interest from Arsenal.

The midfielder has struggled to show consistent good form since he moved to Juve in exchange for Miralem Pjanic.

Because he is one of the club’s highest earners, it is disappointing that he is not delivering better performance.

He could still leave the club this month, but has he done enough to get a second chance?

Football Italia reckons he is becoming an important player for the club, judging by the number of minutes he has had recently.

After starting the campaign mostly on the bench, he has seen more football minutes in Juve’s last few matches.

Max Allegri is trusting him more, and that means his departure would leave a huge void that needs to be filled.

Juve FC Says

Arthur has taken too long to become an important player at Juve, considering the chances he has had.

Even now, he struggles to play and when he is on the pitch, it is hard to believe he would score or make an assist.

We need that from our midfielders as we struggle for goals. It is probably best that he leaves so we can replace him with a player who is better suited to the system of Allegri.

    The problem with Juve’s midfielders has been their lack of mobility. This is not the case with Arthur, he is moving around are finding space after he delivers a pass. Hence I don’t think Allegri will let him go.

    Juve FC is likely incorrect. We are all frustrated with the players output over the entirety of his Juve career, but wouldn’t it be the most Juve thing of all to unload him precisely when he’s regained health and has begun to demonstrate why we moved for him in the first place: no opponent can nick the ball from him when he has possession, his passing ability is formidable. It’s a profile no other mid on the squad has. I would rate Rabiot or perhaps Bentancur as mids we should be looking to move at this juncture.
