Having only played 13 minutes of play this season, Arthur Melo clearly does not fit into Jurgen Klopp’s plans. In order not to lose the rhythm, the former Barça player has therefore decided to join the reserve team of the Reds.

If the competition was going to be tough, Arthur Melo was probably hoping to spend a little more time on the lawns of the Premier League. Recruited by Liverpool during the last summer transfer window, Arthur left Juventus in the form of a paying loan of 4.5 million euros. For the moment, however, the Brazilian is struggling to establish himself within his new team.

The midfielder has only spent 13 minutes on the pitch since arriving in the Merseyside city. Came into play during the rout of the Reds in Naples (4-1), Arthur Melo therefore did not have much opportunity to show what he was worth. However, the 26-year-old would not have given up hope and would do everything to win favor with his coach.

As reported RMC, Arthur Henrique Ramos de Oliveira, his full name, has asked to join Liverpool’s U21 reserve team during this international break. This request was accepted by the club and the midfielder was even able to play against the Leicester U21 team (63 minutes) then against Rochdale (90 minutes) in the Football League Trophy.

This decision was welcomed by the Reds reserve coach. “It shows his level of professionalism. He wants to be fit, he doesn’t need a week off, it’s up to him., was thus packed Barry Lewtas. It remains to be seen whether Jurgen Klopp will consider Arthur Melo’s efforts in the coming months. In recent weeks, the rumor of a return to Turin next winter had circulated. This information, however, was quickly denied.
