Brighton & Hove Albion has taken the football world by surprise with their pursuit of Juventus midfielder Arthur Melo during the summer transfer window.
The Brazilian midfielder spent last season on loan at Liverpool but only managed to make a single appearance for the club. Despite his limited playing time, Melo has an impressive international record, having featured in 22 games for Brazil and scoring one goal.
Melo’s campaign with Liverpool was marred by injury, but he has now fully recovered and is eager to revive his career. According to reports from Globo Esporte, the 26-year-old midfielder is keen on returning to the Premier League, with Brighton emerging as a potential destination for him.
What makes this potential transfer even more intriguing is the possibility of Melo becoming available on a free transfer. Juventus is reportedly open to canceling his contract, providing Brighton with an opportunity to acquire the talented midfielder without paying a transfer fee.

Although Melo still has a year remaining on his current deal with Juventus, his relatively low market value has made offloading his salary a priority for the Italian club. Brighton, on the other hand, could benefit from acquiring Melo at a reduced cost and adding depth to their midfield options.
As negotiations progress, it remains to be seen whether Brighton can secure the signing of Arthur Melo and provide him with a fresh start in the Premier League. Football enthusiasts will be eagerly awaiting further developments regarding this unexpected transfer move.
