Klopp confirms Brazilian international will leave Anfield this summer
The 26-year-old midfielder has struggled to find any form or fitness this season, only playing once for the Reds all season, in a 4-1 defeat to Napoli in the Champions League back in September.
And according to Romano, Arthur’s time at parent club Juventus is also up after his move from Barcelona in 2020 worth around $78m has failed to live up to expectations, with the Brazilian only scoring one goal in two years during his disappointing spell at the Allianz Stadium.
