European giants keen to tempt Arsenal with swap offer for Martinelli
Juventus are said to be willing to test Arsenal’s resolve by trying to entice them into allowing Gabriel Martinelli to leave with Arthur Melo’s offer as part of the deal.
The Gunners are believed to have tried to land the midfielder in January, only to have their loan offer rejected by the Serie A side, but are said to have retained our interest in him.
Arthur is likely to be open to a move, particularly with the World Cup coming later in the year, with Adrien Rabiot, Manuel Locatelli, Denis Zakaria already in contention for minutes in central roles, and with Paul Pogba apparently on his way there too.
Juve are now claimed to be keen to cash in on our interest in the former Barcelona star, trying to tempt us into a deal that would see Martinelli go in the opposite direction, a move Gunners fans won’t resent. don’t expect to be entertained.
Our youngster has shown immense potential and looks like a superstar in the making, but he’s so raw it’s hard to judge how far he can go. I don’t think there’s a single Arsenal fan who would be happy to see him go, while I’d be even more annoyed given that I don’t want to see Artur arrive either.
I really don’t rate the 25-year-old, and I think I would rather stay with Elneny and Xhaka than have him on our side, and needless to say, I don’t want Martinelli to leave either.
If Gabi were to leave, how much would it take for fans to be content with his departure?
