The transfer of Brazilian midfielder Arthur from Juventus to LIVERPOOL seems to be imminent. Arthur Melo, the new midfielder for Liverpool, ‘feels healthy enough to play against Everton,’ giving Jurgen Klopp the possibility of having additional alternatives for Saturday’s Merseyside derby.
The Juventus player is present in the process of traveling to the United Kingdom for his physical with the Reds. Given the severity of the club’s injury issues in the middle of the park, it is possible that the Reds may start the player for the first time this weekend.
Arthur ‘Feels Fit to Play Against Everton’ After Liverpool’s Medical
After suffering many injuries in the center midfield position throughout the season, Liverpool was forced to make some adjustments to their plans for the summer transfer window.
Darwin Nunez, Calvin Ramsey, and Fabio Carvalho had all arrived at Anfield before the start of the Premier League season when Klopp had said that the club’s business had been wrapped up before the start of the season.
The northwest side, on the other hand, has been obliged to go back into the transfer market due to a significant injury issue in the middle of the field. Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain, Naby Keita, Thiago, and Curtis Jones have all been forced to miss out in recent weeks.
The problem was aggravated during the 2-1 win over Newcastle last night with Jordan Henderson picking up a hamstring injury. It is anticipated that the club captain would be out for the next five games, and as a result, the search for a replacement midfielder has become even more urgent.
According to a source in the Daily Mail, the Brazil international player is confident enough in his fitness to start this weekend’s match against Everton, which will be a city rivalry match.
The match will take place on Saturday. It seems likely that he will make his debut for the Reds, considering the problems the team has had with injuries.
It would seem that the team has found their player in Arthur, a top player for Juventus who has fallen out of favor. It seems that the Brazilian will make the switch to Anfield on a loan for the next season; however, the Reds do not have an option to make the transfer permanent.
Garry Monk, a former manager for both Swansea and Birmingham, has lent his backing to Liverpool’s decision by stating that he feels the club has made the best decision possible given the circumstances.
He told Sky Sports that it was clever on the part of Liverpool. “This scenario of requiring a center midfielder has been somewhat thrust upon us as a result of some of the injuries that they have had,” said the commentator.
It would have been very simple for them to purchase specific players and overpay for them, so I think it’s extremely wise and shows excellent discipline on their part to do what they did.
However, doing it strategically with Jurgen Klopp is a good idea. This is a player who we do like, and he must be on their radar for them to like him, but we will go about it in a manner that won’t put us in any financial or football-related jeopardy.
This is a guy that we do like, and they must be interested in him for them to like him. And this guy may come to show himself.
“You always want to give yourself the best chance of being prepared, completed, and finished early. You make an effort to prepare yourself because rapid-fire events might take place inside your squad. Similar to the scenario in Liverpool. That is a possibility.”
On Saturday, the fans of Liverpool will undoubtedly be on the lookout for the team sheet with a great deal of curiosity to determine whether or not they will have the chance to see their new star for the first time.
