Arthur back against Porto?

Juventus midfielder Arthur Melo continues to carry out therapy for the leg injury and the Old Lady reportedly hope to have him back against Porto.

Tuttosport reports the Bianconeri are doing what they can to avoid surgery for the Brazilian, who arrived from Barcelona last summer.

The former Blaugrana player is undergoing focal shockwave sessions and worked in the swimming pool with a view to be back already against Porto next week.

After having initially gritted his teeth and played through the pain, Arthur was eventually forced to stop after the win against Roma on February 6.

For a fortnight the 24-year-old has worked hard to return as soon as possible, and the newspaper claims he aims to be back for the important second leg against the Portuguese giants in the Champions League.
