Arsenal are keen to do another loan after allowing Ainsley Maitland-Niles join Roma until the end of the season.

Arthur joined Juventus from Barcelona in 2020 but, because of injuries and a lack of opportunities, has not had the opportunity to show the level which earned him 21 caps for Brazil.

This is seen as a chance to give him a kick start with all sides hoping it gets the green light from Allegri.

Meanwhile, Arteta has insisted that Eddie Nketiah will stay at Arsenal this window even though his contract expires at the end of the season.

Nketiah is a target for Crystal Palace while Borussia Monchengladbach want to sign him on a pre-contract agreement with Arsenal running the risk of him being a free agent this summer.

They have allowed Folarin Balogun join Middlesbrough on loan and have Alexandre Lacazette also out of contract this summer.

Arteta said: “The situation is that Eddie is our player, he’s under contract so he is going to stay here with us.”
