Arsenal have reportedly agreed personal terms with Juventus midfielder Arthur ahead of a potential loan deal.
The Gunners have been hot on the trail of the Brazilian this month, but they are yet to finalise an agreement.
The Bianconeri are looking for a replacement for the 25-year-old, and only then, will they sanction his exit.
Mikel Arteta‘s side are optimistic that will happen. It is now reported by 90min that they have agreed personal terms.
Arthur earns around €168,000-a-week, and the Gunners are willing to pay his entire wages to sign him this month.
They were initially looking to pursue him on a six-month loan, but are now planning to finalise an 18-month deal.
An option to buy could also be negotiated as the player is determined to prove himself in the Premier League.
The Gunners recently played out a 0-0 draw against Burnley in the Premier League, but it is far from a setback.
The club are just two points behind fourth-placed Manchester United with one game in hand.
