Arthur Melo completes 'dream move' to Liverpool from Juventus

Liverpool have signed Juventus midfielder Arthur Melo on a season-long loan.

The 26-year-old Brazilian international, who will wear the 29 shirt at Liverpool, spent two seasons at both Juventus and Barcelona.

He won La Liga and the Spanish Super Cup at Barcelona, the Coppa Italia with Juve and the Copa America with Brazil.

Boss Jurgen Klopp bolstered his midfield options after Jordan Henderson suffered a hamstring injury.

He told Liverpoolfc.com: "I'm really, really happy to be here wearing 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 visions were a good fit 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 giving my all in a Liverpool shirt."
