Arthur Melo is one of several players frozen out of Juventus, with interest from West Ham, Aston Villa, Wolves and West Ham, but now also Fiorentina .
The midfielder will be 27 next month and is not part of coach Max Allegri’s future plans after returning from a disappointing loan spell at Liverpool. The Brazilian was already well aware that he needed to find another club, and the Premier League seemed the most likely option, with interest from Aston Villa, West Ham, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Roberto De Zerbi’s Brighton and Hove Albion. Sky Sport Italia suggests that Fiorentina have enquired about Arthur, particularly if they manage to sell Sofyan Amrabat. It would be a loan deal with an option to buy, but the most important thing at the moment is that Juve take his wages off their books.
