Barcelona are trying to push Arthur Melo towards Juventus as part of the Miralem Pjanic deal, while the Bianconeri ask after Ansu Fati.
The exchange would already have been done by now were it not for Arthur’s refusal to leave Camp Nou, claim multiple sources in Italy and Spain.
The Brazilian continues to reject any transfer, which is said to be frustrating the Blaugrana.
While they are attempting to push Arthur towards accepting the exit, according to Tuttosport, Juve are looking at other alternatives.
Fichajes.net come up with the intriguing option of Ansu Fati going to Turin in exchange for Pjanic to Barcelona.
The 17-year-old can play in Maurizio Sarri’s preferred 4-3-3 formation and is said to be eager for more playing time than he currently gets in Spain.
He scored five goals in 24 competitive games this season, but his contract only runs to June 2022.
