Arsenal eye player Lionel Messi claimed to be ‘similar to Xavi’




Arsenal have been presented with a route to sign Brazilian midfielder Arthur Melo from Juventus according to a report in Football.London – the 25-year-old has struggled to become a regular in Turin this season.

A potential loan swoop has been rumoured for the former Gremio and Barcelona midfielder who is seemingly in desperate need of a career reboot away from Juventus.

The report hypes up Melo but reminiscing about the time a once former teammate Lionl Messi compared the Brazilian to legendary player and now manager of Barcelona, Xavi;

I didn’t know much about Arthur before [he joined], but he’s really similar to Xavi.”

Melo came off the bench in a thrilling comeback victory against Roma at the weekend, but has scarcely featured due to injury and manager’s preference.

If a loan move for Arthur Melo could be pulled off similar to that of Martin Odegaard last season, it could very well be shrewd business for Edu and Mikel Arteta.
