Liverpool are set to complete a surprise deadline day deal for Juventus midfielder Arthur Melo, with Jurgen Klopp primed to secure late reinforcements. Arthur is travelling to Liverpool to undergo a medical on Thursday and complete a season-long loan before the 11pm deadline.

According to numerous reports, the 26-year-old accepted a move to Anfield immediately after receiving a call from Liverpool on Wednesday night. The Reds are outlining the final details of the loan deal with Juventus, with no buy option currently involved in negotiations.

GOAL journalist Romeo Agresti has posted a video on Twitter of Arthur preparing to travel to England to complete his Premier League switch. There is confidence the move will be signed off in time, with over 12 hours of the transfer window remaining, to aid Klopp’s early season injury crisis.
