Quality’ Liverpool player may have as little as six weeks to stop his exit

Arthur Melo may only have six weeks to stop his Liverpool exit. The Brazilian hasn’t been at the club long but is on borrowed time.


Liverpool made a surprise signing at the end of the transfer window as they brought in Arthur on loan from Juventus. They have an option to buy him permanently, too, with the Italians sharing a £32m clause.


But things don’t look great. Tuttomercatoweb claim that Liverpool aren’t exactly impressed with their signing and could call quits on the deal in January.


Now, that isn’t the strongest source and we wouldn’t read too much into that. But it’s undoubtedly true that Liverpool could make that decision – after all, Arthur was a last-minute punt of a transfer. He’s not someone the Reds have held a long-term plan for.


So with that in mind, we look to how long Arthur actually has to convince before the January transfer window arrives. It’s as little as six weeks.

Arthur must stave off Liverpool exit

Postponements mean Liverpool won’t play again until October 1st. On the one hand, that benefits Arthur as he gets more training time before the games arrive thick and fast.



On the other, it’s a bit of a disaster. Liverpool’s season takes a pause on November 12th as the World Cup arrives, meaning there will only be about six weeks of football before the Reds are looking at the transfer window.


After all, their winter plans won’t be made in the five days between the end of the World Cup and the start of the window. Liverpool will form them during the tournament and will have the early stages of the season to work with.

But for Arthur, that will be a few minutes against Napoli and whatever he can show between October 1st and November 12th. It’s an unbelievably short amount of time for what is a career-defining spel.
