The English club has an option to buy up to €37.5 million for the Brazilian international (22 caps), 26 years old. Arthur Melo played his first 13 minutes of play with his new team against Naples in the Champions League (1-4 defeat). According to Fabrizio Romano, who interviewed the club and the player’s clan, Liverpool have no intention of sending Arthur Melo to Juventus this winter, while rumors to that effect have flourished in recent days. Jürgen Klopp is counting on the Brazilian who has passed through FC Barcelona this season, while his midfielder is currently handicapped by injuries (Naby Keïta, Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones).

Last year, Arthur Melo only played 20 Serie A games with Juventus. The midfielder is trying to find the rhythm and an optimal physical condition at the start of the season.

A trail flushed out in São Paulo?

According to information shared by Liverpool Echo, the Mersey club would have sights on the Brazilian João Gomes. Aged 21, the defensive midfielder from São Paulo still has two and a half years of contract with his club. Estimated at 10 million euros by the specialized site TransfermarktJoão Gomes, also tracked by Manchester United, made a foot call to Liverpool, on instagramwhen a question was asked about his future: “Liverpool is a team I will play for”.

The English club, which got off to a bad start to its season in the Premier League (8th in the standings) and in the Champions League (1 defeat and 1 victory in 2 games), seems to have the advantage over the competition for the Brazilian’s record, which has played a lot in 2022 (61 games).
