Juventus midfielder Felipe Melo has emerged as a surprise transfer target for Arsenal reports talkSPORT.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is said to be a huge admirer of the South American star who has 22 international caps to his name since making his debut for Brazil back in 2008.

The 27-year-old would add some much needed experience to a young Arsenal side, and is seen as an ideal partner to compliment the emerging talent of Jack Wilshere in the Arsenal midfield.

Reports in Italy suggest that a player exchange deal could be on the cards, with Denilson rumoured to be heading in the opposite direction after failing to make any impact at the Emirates Stadium this season.


Melo has been described as somewhat of a nomadic midfielder, having failed to ever really settle he has plied his trade at eight different clubs in as many seasons.

But the tough-tackling samba starlet would likely relish the opportunity to showcase his talents in the Barclays Premier League with Arsenal.

With the Gunners still in the running for trophies in three different competitions this season, Wenger is already looking ahead to the summer transfer window to continue strengthening his side in a bid to build an Arsenal side capable of challenging on both domestic and European fronts.
