Liverpool Football Club have signed Juventus midfielder Arthur Melo on loan until the end of the season.

The Brazil international, 26, made 31 appearances for Juventus last term but has not played in this campaign.

“I’m really happy to be here wearing this great shirt with this famous badge that represents so much in world football. It’s a dream,” Arthur said.

He arrives at Anfield to help ease Liverpool’s current injury problems in midfield.

“I’m really happy and highly motivated to continue living my dream on the pitch and giving my all in a Liverpool shirt,” added Arthur.

Capped 22 times by Brazil, Arthur lifted the Copa America in 2019 alongside current Reds goalkeeper Alisson Becker and forward Roberto Firmino.

Like another compatriot Fabinho, he is viewed as a player capable of occupying a deeper midfield role who will not restrict the pathway of youngsters Harvey Elliott, Fabio Carvalho and Curtis Jones.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson came off in the 2-1 win against Newcastle United on Wednesday with a hamstring issue.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp says the 32-year-old will “definitely not be available” for the Merseyside derby against Everton on Saturday.

Henderson joins Thiago Alcantara, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the list of injured Reds midfielders.

Arthur has injury concerns of his own, suffering two separate ankle problems this year.
