Gremio president Romildo Bolzan Jr has offered Barcelona hope that they could bring Arthur to the Camp Nou this summer.

Barcelona have agreed an option to sign Arthur in July but Bolzan has previously said there is “no chance” he could join this summer. The expectation is that Arthur will arrive at Barcelona in the winter instead.

However, he now says that if Barcelona were to put together an offer for Arthur the club would take a look at it.

“If there is any offer for Arthur to leave in the summer we will analyze it, but at the moment no proposal has arrived.”

Barcelona may well want Arthur this summer with Andres Iniesta having departed and with Carles Alena set to miss the next several months after undergoing surgery.
