Juventus have admitted that they will consider offers for midfielder Felipe Melo who has long been linked with a move to the Premier League with Arsenal.

Melo arrived in Turin as part of a £21 million deal last summer after a successful stint with Fiorentina, but turned out to be a disappointment in his first season with Juve.

"Melo's situation is the same as other players at the club," revealed sporting director Giuseppe Marotta to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Hence, we are on guard to evaluate all eventual offers."

The 27-year-old came under fire recently after he was sent off in Brazil's 2-1 World Cup quarter-final defeat to the Netherlands but Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been a long-term admirer of the holding midfielder's talents and could be tempted by a move this summer.
