The Frenchman did insist however that he sees the midfielder returning to the Emirates in a few years.
He told TuttoJuve: “He is doing well, so I am satisfied.
“The competition in Juventus is strong because there are very strong players in every department, but every time he plays he is very consistent, has excellent technique and is often well positioned to score as he did on Saturday against Sampdoria. He made an excellent choice.
“I maintain that he is making a difference here too, because it is not easy to play in such a qualitative midfield. I think he can help the team and be decisive like Arsenal.
“He is very intelligent and knows how to adapt everywhere, Juve is a very big club and Serie A is improving him even more.
“He needs to stay a few more years and then he will return to Arsenal. It is my belief, I am not a fortune teller.”
