Arsenal has been interested in signing Brazilian midfielder Arthur Melo for the past six months as he struggles to make an impact at Juventus.
The Gunners were unable to reach an agreement with the Old Lady regarding his inclusion in their squad at the time, but this summer provides them with another opportunity.
Juve wants to get rid of Arthur this window, and Arsenal is still interested in signing him.
Both clubs, according to Sport Witness, are now close to an agreement because they both believe his best option is to leave on loan.
If Arsenal likes him, they could make the move permanent for a fee.
