Arthur's representatives are close to agreeing personal terms with Juventus ahead of a £72.5m switch from Barcelona.
It was reported on Tuesday that Juventus had agreed a fee with Barcelona to sign Arthur, although the player was not yet convinced about a move to the Italian side.
However, according to Sky in Italy, Arthur has since agreed to the move - having originally insisted to both teams that he did not want to leave the Nou Camp.
It is understood personal terms are close to being finalised, with the 23-year-old midfielder set to earn £4.5m (€5m) per year in Turin.
Arthur featured from the start and played 56 minutes in Barcelona's 1-0 victory against Athletic Bilbao on Tuesday.
It has been reported Juventus head coach Maurizio Sarri wants to build his midfield around the Brazil international in a similar way to that of Jorginho at Napoli and Chelsea.
Sky Sports News has been told a deal to take 30-year-old Miralem Pjanic in the opposite direction is also close to agreement.
Sky in Italy say the clubs have agreed a fee of £54.25m (€60m), plus bonuses, for Pjanic.
