Liverpool star returns to first-team training after four months with hamstring injury



Deal On: Liverpool set to move in summer for Ajax striker

Liverpool midfielder Arthur Melo has returned to training and is hoping to make his contribution as Jurgen Klopp steps up preparations for the upcoming Merseyside derby.

The 26-year-old trained with Liverpool’s fringe players on Sunday and showed no ill effects when he joined the first team at AXA’s Kirkby training center on Wednesday.

Arthur’s loan spell at Juventus was marred by the fact he suffered a hamstring tear in October after struggling to make up for the lack of a good pre-season at his parent club amid speculation about his future.


His storyline has become more relevant as the aging Liverpool midfielder has underperformed this season, with fans and pundits alike clamoring for new signings in that department.

In fact, their summer transfer target is to sign Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund and Matheus Nunes from Wolves. You also asked about Moises Caicedo of Brighton.

Arthur was keen to make a difference and claim a permanent transfer, but the expected four-month delay to recover from his torn thigh meant he was left out of the Champions League squad last week.

Although frustrated, he remained optimistic and, after Wednesday’s session, is now determined to help Liverpool regain their league form.

The key to the talented Brazilian’s rehabilitation has been rebuilding his quadriceps strength, using extra weight units to give him two weeks ahead of schedule.

On Sunday he trained alongside the Liverpool players who did not start in Saturday’s loss to Wolves and was reinstated in full training on Wednesday with the first team, who have been granted a day off earlier in the week to prepare for the decisive game with Everton. Arthur made the most of the session before setting off to do more one-on-one work to keep up with his teammates.

Arthur is hoping to impress Klopp, knowing Liverpool will make changes to their midfield in the summer. Naby Keita is increasingly likely to leave on a free transfer, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is also considering leaving. James Milner has also not yet been offered a new contract.

However, Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino is hoping to agree a new contract this month. His agent Roget Wittmann confirmed that the talks are progressing well.

This year January signing Cody Gakpo has been included to the squad list for the second half of the league season.

The Netherlands international has played two matches in the top flight so far.

when we speak of homegrown players, the clubs can name up to eight in their senior squad. Liverpool have sdded just seven in their list, while the remaining places in the quota were completed by players who qualified as homegrown. The other 17 players counted as non-home grown.
