Felipe Melo to Arsenal

The Daily Star believes Juventus midfielder Felipe Melo is on the verge of a move to Arsenal.

Well, as usual I can't vouch for the authenticity of any transfer rumour, but I bet this is worth the time.
Felipe Melo has being linked to Arsenal severally in the past, but his outrageous price tag kept our wise man at bay.

Things have condescended to such a level that Juventus won't think
twice before off-loading the Brazilian as far as the price is

It's very difficult to believe that the season old romance between
the Brazilian and Fidanzata d'italia has gone
this sour, to an extent Juve are literally hawking their asset in the transfer market.

Arsene Wenger is a long term admirer of the player and he might take advantage of Juve's unwillingness to keep the hard-tackling 26-year-old who cost them a princely sum of £25m at Turin.

Wenger is expected to pay a fraction of his original price (maybe £10m).
Is Melo that good for Arsenal?
