Arthur exit denied and “optimism” after Bellingham talks – Latest LFC News

Thursday saw claims of a January exit for Arthur quickly quashed, while speculation continues over Liverpool signing Jude Bellingham this summer.


No January exit for Arthur – but Bellingham “optimism”

As he continues his recovery from a long-term thigh injury, this week brought claims that Arthur’s loan could be cut short.

Brazilian journalist Felippe Facincani described the situation as “very complicated” as Palmeiras explore the possibility of signing the 26-year-old from Juventus.

So much so, it seems, that it will not be happening – at least this month.

In the Liverpool Echo‘s live blog on Thursday afternoon, it was explained that “there’s no chance of Arthur leaving Liverpool this January.”

The midfielder will not be retained beyond the end of the season, though, with plans in motion to revamp Jurgen Klopp‘s midfield.

Bellingham is the priority target, and Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg claimed on Thursday morning that the club are “still optimistic” they will secure a deal for the 19-year-old.

Plettenberg explained that “talks took place” but that the player “hasn’t yet spoken personally to Klopp,” with “no official offer” made.

“Liverpool offers him the possibility to become the new Steven Gerrard,” he added.
