Italian media outlet ‘Foot Mercato’ reported on the 18th (KST) that “Juventus wants to regain control of Serie A. Juventus believe they are not competitive at the moment. They are trying to convince Pati to leave Arsenal for Juventus. Juventus’ transfer market will accelerate in the coming months,” the report said.
Pati made his debut for Atletico after coming through the Atletigo Madrid youth ranks. He spent a year with Atletico’s B team and two years on loan. After returning from his loan spell, Pati gradually earned a starting spot. With Atletico’s aging midfield and the departure of Rodri, Pati became an established starter.
He then moved to Arsenal, where injuries and inconsistency initially kept him out of the starting lineup, but over time, he found his way into Mikel Arteta’s system. Petit made 33 appearances in the league last season. Arsenal were in a tight title race with Manchester City and narrowly missed out on the title.
To make up for it, Arsenal made changes in the midfield. Declan Rice was brought in for a big fee. Granit Xhaka left the team and the party was over. A move to Juventus seemed likely, but then Saudi Arabia showed interest in Fathi. However, it didn’t happen and he stayed at Arsenal.레모나토토 도메인
The combination of Fathi and Rice was highly anticipated. With more players capable of making an impact in the middle of the park, it was expected that Arsenal’s football would become more powerful. But injuries intervened. The more time Petit was sidelined, the more Martin Ødegaard was freed up.
When Petit returned from injury, it wasn’t long before he was out again. “He has a muscle injury and we expect him to be out for a few weeks,” Arteta said. Pati has started just four league games this season. He would have played more if not for the injury. In the meantime, Juventus have shown continued interest in the player and plan to pursue him in the winter transfer window.
