Arthur aiming for Porto comeback

Arthur Melo is reportedly hoping to feature for Juventus in the Champions League against FC Porto, even though he is not yet fully healed.

The midfielder has been out of action since February 6, as he was diagnosed with the calcification of an old injury in his right leg.

This was causing pain and preventing the full healing of the old tear in the membrane.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Arthur has been undergoing conservative treatment rather than opting for surgery, and the situation has improved, but he is still not fully healed.

Nonetheless, the Brazilian is eager to step in and help his teammates in the Champions League Round of 16 against Porto.

Juventus lost the first leg 2-1 and host Porto in Turin on March 9.
