Arsenal ‘turn attention back to Juventus star Arthur transfer to bolster shaky midfield’ after failing in January swoop

ARSENAL are set to re-ignite their interest in Juventus ace Arthur, according to reports.

Arthur, 25, joined the Italian giants from Barca in the summer of 2020.

The move hasn't quite gone to plan, however.
