Juventus and Arsenal have designed a neat swap move that will see Felipe Melo swap places with Gael Clichy.
Il Corriere dello Sport claims Arsene Wenger has stitched together a rescue plan for Melo and he is ready to revive his career by taking him to north London.
The Brazilian endured a miserable first year in Turin and his stamp on Arjen Robben at the World Cup did not go down well with Bianconeri coach Luigi Del Neri. Wenger's penchant for the midfielder is no secret.
The Gunners tried to land him from Fiorentina last year, but they abandoned the chase when Juventus upscaled their bids.
However, Arsenal will offer Clichy for Melo and the deal could be a good solution for both clubs.
Del Neri would cure his left-back problems - Fabio Grosso has been tipped to leave for Atletico Madrid and his loss would mean cover will be scarce.
And the Gunners would land their long-time target to add fire to their midfield.
