Newcastle ‘will rival’ Aston Villa for Emery target – Agent says player set to leave club

The Brazil international will have to return to the Serie A side after a disappointing loan spell at Liverpool.


AS state his future could be in England, where both Aston Villa and the Magpies have him on their agenda.

The player doesn’t want to stay at the Turin club if Massimiliano Allegri were to continue there next season. The former Barcelona man is of the belief Allegri’s style doesn’t suit him and prefers to join another club, likely in England.

Aston Villa and Newcastle both received encouragement in their pursuit of Arthur after his agent, Federico Pastorello, admitted he could change clubs in this window.

“Arthur? He’s not part of the coach’s tactical plans even if there’s great mutual esteem. So inevitably we’ll have to find a new loan deal or in any case a permanent sale,” he told Sportitalia on Thursday.
