When it comes to the transfer market, Liverpool are simply one of the best in the business.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Liverpool have reached agreement to loan Juventus midfielder Arthur Melo.
The Brazil international joined Juventus from Barcelona for a fee in the region of 76 million euros in September 2020. His contract expires in the summer of 2025.
He has played 63 times for Juventus over the course of his career, scoring one goal and providing one assist.
The 26-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Brazil. Melo has also left his mark at the international stage after netting one goal in 22 senior appearances for the Brazil national team.
Arthur Melo is out of the picture at Juventus, which has opened the door for a potential exit.
Jurgen Klopp wants to sign a new midfielder and Melo is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. Klopp is a long term admirer of Melo and believes he can get the most out of the Brazil international.
The former Barcelona man will offer the Liverpool boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.
According to the report, “Jurgen Klopp is set to solve his midfield problem with the signing of Arthur Melo on loan from Juventus. The 26-year-old Brazilian, who has not featured for Juve this season is heading to England for a medical. It’s a name that has come out of the blue for Liverpool, with a number of other targets linked to the club. Gianluca Di Marzio broke the story on Thursday morning with the player set to fly to Liverpool on Thursday. And the reporter is clear that a loan deal is “all done”.”
