Juventus could propose a straight swap deal with Arsenal for €50 million midfielder, as they could send Arthur Melo the other way.

According to Tutto Juve, Juventus ponder proposing a swap deal involving Thomas Partey and Arthur Melo. The Bianconeri are interested in the €50 million midfielder from the Gunners, while they see no future for the Liverpool flop at their club.

The Thomas Partey situation remains unsolved, with multiple reports suggesting he could quit Arsenal in the summer. After a good season under Mikel Arteta, where the Gunners narrowly missed out on the Premier League title, the Ghanaian midfielder was a key player for the north Londoners.

However, with Arsenal favourites to sign Declan Rice, the England international could become a direct replacement for Partey. Arsenal are not letting their guard down for now and could sell the Ghanaian only after the arrival of the West Ham captain.

Concrete reports have p[pointed towards Arsenal’s consideration about selling Partey, and they might have held discussions regarding his future. There has been plenty of talk about Saudi interest in the €50 million midfielder, but the Gunners will want a sizeable fee to let him leave.

The report insists on Juventus’s interest in Partey, and they are pondering over proposing a straight swap deal involving Arthur Melo. The Liverpool flop has had a terrible season and has no place in Massimiliano Allegri’s plans.

Juventus feel they can broker a straight swap and maintain book valuations on both ends. Although the report suggests Arthur has a better value than Partey, the reality is that the Ghanaian is miles ahead of the Brazilian on the pitch.

Arthur also has interest from some English clubs, but not from Arsenal. Juventus are banking on the Gunners to reignite their past interest in the Brazilian midfielder, which may not become a possibility. The Gunners were keen on more than one occasion, but not any more.

They have more firm targets like Romeo Lavia if Partey leaves and will not want to reignite their interest in the Liverpool flop. Hence, a swap deal may not work out for Juventus, who may have to pay a sizeable fee to lure Partey.
