Arthur arrives in Tuscany to complete Fiorentina switch

Juventus midfielder Arthur Melo arrived at the Santa Maria Novella metro station in Firenze this evening ahead of his transfer switch to Fiorentina.

The Brazilian is scheduled to undergo his medical examinations with La Viola tomorrow morning before officially becoming their first transfer acquisition of the summer.

Arthur’s club future was finally resolved earlier this week when his agent met with the Bianconeri on Tuesday to negotiate the renewal his contract in order to facilitate a loan move to the Tuscan side.

According to Sky Sport, the midfielder will move to Fiorentina on an initial loan which will cost between €3-€4 million—they’ll also possess an option to make the deal permanent for an additional €20 million.
