Report: Liverpool could send Arthur back to Juventus in January
The Reds were desperate to sign a new midfielder in the summer. They left it really late in the window, and on transfer deadline day, they pulled off a surprise move for Arthur, who was surplus to requirements in Turin.
Liverpool could terminate Arthur Melo’s loan deal in January
Arthur is a phenomenal player on his day, but Liverpool’s decision to go and sign him after clubs like Arsenal turned him down raised many eyebrows.
However, Klopp rarely ever gets his signings wrong, which is why Liverpool fans were a bit excited to see how things would turn out for the Brazilian at Anfield.
Arthur has played just 13 minutes of football for the Reds so far – all of which came against Napoli in Liverpool’s humiliating defeat in the Champions League.
He was an unused substitute in their win over Ajax this week, and that may be a common theme going forward.
The report claims that Klopp and co at Liverpool feel Arthur is not at the level they expected. They’re not convinced at all by him and are already considering signing a new midfielder in January.
If they can sign someone in the winter window, it has been claimed that Liverpool could terminate Arthur’s loan deal and send him back to Juventus.
That would be devastating for the Brazilian, who is not wanted in Turin either. He’d be stuck in a really difficult situation, which is a shame, as he has the quality to be a really important player for a club that suits him.
It’s still early days for Arthur and a lot can still change in the coming months. However, early signs don’t look great at all.
