Arsenal have restarted talks with Juventus over a summer deal for Arthur, Tuttomercatoweb claims.
The Brazilian was on the club’s radar in January, but they could not seal a suitable agreement with the Bianconeri.
The Gunners wanted a six-month loan deal, but the Serie A giants were adamant that it had to be an 18-month loan.
This pulled the plug on the negotiations, but it appears the Gunners are now back in the hunt for the former Barcelona star.
Arthur could be available for just £25 million this summer, and talks are reportedly underway between the clubs in London.
The midfielder has already agreed personal terms with the Gunners and it should be a formality when the fee is finalised.
The Gunners are likely to miss out on the top four in the Premier League and this could have a drastic effect on their transfer plans.
A number of high-profile players are unlikely to join without Champions League football, and the club may need to find alternatives.
