Juventus midfielder Arthur Melo is once again being linked with a move to Arsenal.
The Gunners were heavily interested in signing him during the January window, but, in the end, the Turin club were unwilling to let him leave without sourcing a replacement first.
However, with the Brazilian international seeing little game time over the remainder of the season, they are now prepared to listen to reasonable offers for him.
They value him at close to £42 million, but are prepared to listen to potential swap deals as well, and are considering taking names such as Thomas Partey, Gabriel Magalhaes or Gabriel Martinelli in an exchange.
Whether Mikel Arteta would countenance any of them leaving seems a moot point, because he is looking to add quality and depth to his squad this summer, not undermine it further.
Arthur is under contract in Turin until 2025 so they have no urgent need to sell him.
