Author Melo not keen on leaving Liverpool, confirms agent
Author Melo has confirmed through his agent that he will stay at Liverpool in the upcoming transfer window even amidst a lot of transfer window linking him with a return back to Juventus. The Brazilian came from the Italian outfit on a season-long loan deal. However, it has been a nightmare few months for the midfielder who has not yet made a Premier League appearance due to a string of fitness problems. Just when it seemed that he would be able to make use of the World Cup competition to get some much-needed gametime, a thigh injury picked up a few weeks ago prevented him from being part of the major tournament.
“[He will] stay 100 per cent at Liverpool in January. It’s an aspect that has never been under discussion.I don’t know who questioned the rumours about his possible return to Turin, but that’s not the case,” said Arthur’s agent, Federico Pastorello. It is expected that Liverpool may sign a couple of players in the January transfer window in order to overcome the poor form shown throughout the campaign. The Reds are struggling to even get a solid top four position in the Premier League this season.
