Liverpool transfers

With the 2022 summer transfer window closed, we round up the done deals, and some of the players linked with moves in and out of Liverpool.

Liverpool sign Juve midfielder Arthur on loan

Liverpool have reached an agreement with Juventus for the season-long loan of midfielder Arthur Melo, with an option to make the deal permanent for £32m.

The loan deal eases Liverpool's midfield crisis, with Thiago Alcantara, Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all currently sidelined due to injury.

A statement from the Juventus website says Liverpool have paid £3.9m as a loan fee, with the Premier League club having the option to sign Arthur permanently at the end of the loan for £32.3m.
