A last minute gift. This summer, Liverpool fairly quickly completed the transfer window for newcomers with Darwin Nunez, Fabio Carvalho and Calvin Ramsey. However, Jurgen Klopp, frustrated with his side’s start to the season, requested additional reinforcements in midfield. A sector in which many players were injured, such as Thiago Alcantara, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita.
So the German technician wanted a new player. The English press quoted the name of the Belgian Yuri Tillmans (Leicester). Then he mentioned the name Moises Caicedo (Brighton). A player that the Reds intend to offer him about 50 million euros. But the seagulls shut the door, because they wanted to at least double. The Anfield residents had to go back on another path. And this morning, they finally chose 26-year-old Arthur Melo.
Player whose profile has been verified by Klopp. You still have to live with Juventus? It was clearly not a problem because the old lady wanted to give it up this summer. So all parties agreed, and the Brazilian, who was recently linked to OL, was able to join Liverpool on loan. Mercy Club has just formalized the good news with a press release posted on their official website.
Liverpool Football Club can confirm the signing of Arthur Melo on loan from Juventus for the remainder of the 2022-23 season, subject to international approval. The Reds decided to boost their midfield options on the day of the transfer deadline by acquiring the 26-year-old, who completed a move to AXA Academy on Thursday.
He is looking to return from his time in Barcelona
On the other hand, the player said: “I am really happy to be here with this great shirt with this famous badge which means so much in world football it is a dream come true. We talked a lot and our ideas and visions matched well so I am sure it was the right choice. I am really happy and very motivated to continue living My dream is to be on the pitch and give everything I have in the Liverpool shirt.”.
A new big challenge for the Auriverde midfielder, who has lost momentum in recent seasons. After a good start at FC Barcelona, he has seen his ups and downs at Juventus, where he hasn’t really established himself as a midfield manager. At Liverpool, he will be free to do so because his club will need him to make up for the many absences and play on all fronts.
