Gremio vice-president Duda Kroeff has told Barcelona they need to trust in Arthur amid speculation he could leave for Juventus in the summer.

The midfielder has said he wants to stay at the Camp Nou but rumors about a move to the Turin giants refuses to go away.

Kroeff says that back in Brazil there has been surprise at the news that Arthur could leave Barcelona and thinks the Catalan giants need to patient with the 23-year-old.

“Here in Brazil we were all very surprised to read these news coming from Italy and Spain. Pjanic is 30 years old, Arthur 23 ...

“And then there are two midfielders who look very alike on the field. Only that Arthur has six seasons less on the shoulders than Pjanic ...

“Arthur only needs continuity to do his best, I assure you. I am convinced that if you decide to really bet on him, he will respond by showing everyone that he is a good player.

“He reminds me of Xavi Hernandez for the his style of play and his almost unique way of interpreting football.“

Recent reports from Italy claim Juve are hopeful they can convince Arthur to change his mind and be part of a swap deal that will see Miralem Pjanic move the other way.
