Arthur Melo, who Liverpool signed on a loan for, won’t be leaving anytime soon, according to Fabrizio Romano, who earlier corroborated a claim from Guillem Balague on Twitter
Strangely, the Merseysiders were expected to send the Brazilian back to Turin because, according to one rumor, Jurgen Klopp felt the player didn’t match the type of midfielder he was looking for in his squad.
The former Barcelona player would have had to be beyond poor and lethargic to have sparked such a course of action so early in his loan term given that the German has only seen the 26-year-old play a few minutes on the field in Naples and for about two weeks in training.
We would have been disappointed to see Arthur’s time at Anfield end prematurely because who would want to give their best effort if they knew they would be let go in January? , so this is undoubtedly welcome—if perhaps unnecessary—news.
Although it must be acknowledged that the No. 29 needs a lot of work to catch up with the demands of Klopp’s system, it appears that he is already winning praise for his performance in training.
