Liverpool have confirmed the capture of Arthur Melo on loan from Juventus, as Jurgen Klopp signs the midfielder he desperately needed before deadline day.

Liverpool have confirmed the arrival of Arthur Melo from Juventus, with the Brazilian signing a season-long loan deal. Jurgen Klopp wanted to bring in a new midfielder before the transfer period ended and has got his hands on the former Barcelona star for the rest of the campaign.

Liverpool have got their hands on a new midfielder before the transfer window shut, as Arthur Melo moves from Juventus to Merseyside. The Brazilian was expected to depart Turin throughout the summer, but it took until deadline day to get his departure sorted.

A few injuries rocked Liverpool since the season began. Thiago is set to miss a considerable period with a fitness issue, while Jordan Henderson suffered a hamstring problem yesterday against Newcastle United, leaving the Reds short in the position.

Jurgen Klopp mentioned long ago that Liverpool may have concluded their transfer business but recently admitted to needing a new midfielder following their issues. They were expected to be active on deadline day, and Liverpool did not disappoint.

The Reds reportedly approached Brighton for Moises Caicedo, but their efforts were not entertained. Soon they turned their attention towards Italy, as Arthur Melo became available, as has been his status all summer.

Liverpool closed in on an agreement with Juventus over a loan deal and have now got their man. The season-long contract was not expected to contain a buy option, although Juventus’ official statement insists it does.

According to the statement released by Juventus and the publishing of the transfer document, it’s revealed that Liverpool will pay a loan fee of €4.5 million. The Reds also have an option to buy the Brazilian outright at the end of the season for €37.5 million, payable in two financial years.

The Brazilian had to say upon signing his contract with Liverpool. “I’m happy to be here wearing this great shirt with this famous badge representing so much in world football; it’s a dream.

“We talked a lot, and our ideas and visions were a good fit, so I’m sure it was the right choice. I’m happy and highly motivated to continue living my dream on the pitch and giving my all in a Liverpool shirt.”

Arthur can play in a double pivot or a midfield three, depending on the system. He is used to playing high-intensity football at Barcelona and Juventus and will prove an excellent addition to Liverpool.
