Liverpool agree with Arthur
Liverpool made official the signing of midfielder Arthur, on loan from Juventus de Turin until June 2023, with no option to buy at the end of the contract. With no space at the Italian club, the player was even offered to Sporting, from Portugal, which he rejected. The idea of the English is to have an “emergency” reinforcement for the midfield, since several players in the sector are delivered to the medical department.
Revealed at Grêmio, Arthur is 26 years old, played in 31 matches last season for Juventus and did not score any goals. His contract with the Turin team runs until June 2025.
Santos bets on old acquaintance
Santos may have a “homemade” reinforcement for the midfield in 2023. Alison, an old acquaintance of the Santos fans, is free on the market and is undergoing surgery at CT Rei Pelé. The midfielder was very close to being hired by Peixe in March, but a serious ligament injury in his left knee prevented the hit. He was injured precisely in what would be the farewell by Al-Hazem, from Saudi Arabia.
Without receiving wages at the Arab club, Alison terminated the contract and is free. The expectation is to be recovered in January to start the pre-season at Santos or at another club.

Former Corinthians in Fulham
