Liverpool are on a season-long loan from Juventus for Brazilian midfielder Arthur Melo

Liverpool have ended their search for a midfielder with the signing of Brazil international Arthur Melo from Juventus.

The 26-year-old completed his medical degree on the deadline and his transfer is subject to international clearance.

Jurgen Klopp’s crisis in midfield escalated after Wednesday night’s 2-1 win against Newcastle, when captain Jordan Henderson required a check-up for a hamstring injury that could sideline him for three weeks.

The Liverpool manager had already admitted he was wrong not to sign a midfielder earlier in the window as injuries to Thiago Alcantara and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain further limited his options.

Arthur, who had fallen down the pecking order at Juventus, was spotted as a short-term solution and that of the independent Miguel Delaney reports that the loan deal does not include an option to buy next summer.

Arthur told Liverpool’s website: “I’m really, really happy to be here and to wear this great shirt with this famous badge that represents so much in world football, it’s a dream.

“We talked a lot and our ideas and vision fitted well together, so I’m sure it was the right choice. I’m really happy and highly motivated to continue living my dream on the pitch and to give my all in the Liverpool shirt.”

Arthur came on as a substitute in Liverpool’s famous 4-0 comeback win over Barcelona in the Champions League semi-finals, adding: “Liverpool have a wonderful history in football. I played against Liverpool, I know how it feels to be in the stadium with the fans behind you.

“I was with the opposition and now I’m on the right side, so I’m really excited. It’s a huge club with a great manager and great players. Like I said, it’s a dream to be here.” Liverpool are on a season-long loan from Juventus for Brazilian midfielder Arthur Melo
