Would Arthur Melo signing ease Reds' midfield struggle


Arthur Melo moved to Liverpool on a season-long loan on Thursday's transfer deadline

Before the deal came through the Reds were forced to cool down their interest for several other midfield options they were touted to sign.

Initial reports early Thursday indicated that Liverpool attempted to sign Aston Villa’s Douglas Luiz and Barcelona's Frenkie de Jong and Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo.

Juventus received an offer  for Arthur Melo that same day, which involved a season-long loan that'll end on June 2023. Alternatively, Konstantinos Tsimikas was rumoured to be moving the other way but that would come too late as the Reds didn't struck a swap deal.

Brazil's Arthur joined Juventus from Barcelona in 2020. Now he will kickoff his campaign under the Reds with a permanent deal a prise to claim next summer.

How new signing Arthur Melo could easy Liverpool's midfield problem

Many Liverpool FC fans have been begging for a new midfielder all summer although few expected Arthur to be the chosen solution to their problems.

The Brazilian midfielder does have some needed experience playing for Barcelona and Juventus as well as his native Brazil. However, his recent poor form and history of injuries raises significant concern. Some believe that Liverpool may have made a low-risk move hoping the best will come.

Potential changes in scenery or a lack of playing time at Juventus could make Arthur an effective short-term solution as he'll battle to cement a permanent deal.

Jurgen Klopp speaking on signing a new midfielder few days to the closing of the summer negotiation period said: "We spoke about reasons why sometimes it is not happening, sometimes too expensive, sometimes not the right player. Situations change, but one thing stays important, it needs to be the right player."

Fans earnestly trust on Jurgen Klopp's business gambits when it comes to buying players and they can be confident this is a wise move too.
