“Worst signing of the Jurgen Klopp era” – Presenter drops huge claim on Liverpool flop



“Worst signing of the Jurgen Klopp era” – Presenter drops huge claim on Liverpool flop

A Liverpool star has failed to live up to expectations since making the move to Merseyside

Liverpool star Arthur Melo has proven to be ‘the worst signing of the Jurgen Klopp era’ after struggling to make an impact at Anfield, Redmen TV presenter Paul Machin has told GIVEMESPORT.

The Reds will be handed the opportunity to freshen up their squad when the summer transfer window opens for business.

Liverpool transfer news – Arthur Melo

According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Klopp has confirmed that Arthur will leave Liverpool when his season-long loan agreement comes to an end.

The respected journalist also suggests that the central midfielder will be on the market when he returns to parent club Juventus, who are looking to get him off their books.

Liverpool parted with a £4million loan fee and took on Arthur’s six-figure weekly salary when they signed him during the final hours of last summer’s transfer window.

But a long-term injury, which required surgery, has resulted in the Brazilian being restricted to just 13 minutes of action in a Reds shirt.

It is understood that Klopp is mulling over whether to hand Arthur his Premier League debut when Liverpool wrap up their campaign with a trip to already-relegated Southampton this weekend.

What has Paul Machin said about Arthur?

Machin has been so disappointed with Arthur that he feels the 26-year-old will go down as Klopp’s worst signing at the Liverpool helm.

The Redmen TV presenter believes the one saving grace from the deal which took the South American to Anfield is the fact the Merseyside outfit did not part with a lucrative fee.

Machin told GIVEMESPORT: “Arthur Melo has to be the worst signing of the Jurgen Klopp era. It can’t be classified as anything other than that.

“The only good thing is that Liverpool didn’t pay money for him and the fact that it was a loan. But I think, given the circumstances, there was no hype around him.

“It was seen as very much a break glass solution to a problem. It turned out that wasn’t the only thing that got broken when Liverpool signed him, it was the player himself.”

Why did Klopp sign Arthur on loan?

Klopp can be forgiven for taking a chance on Arthur as, according to Transfermarkt, he headed to Merseyside having clinched an abundance of silverware – including the Copa America, Copa Libertadores and La Liga title.

The Liverpool chief thought he was bringing in a midfielder with a winning mentality, who had racked up 10 goal contributions in 72 appearances for former club Barcelona.

But Arthur has struggled with injuries throughout his career, missing close to 80 matches at club level due to varying issues.

That worrying statistic should have been taken into consideration when Klopp was looking to bolster his options.

Liverpool are certainly making the right decision by opting not to turn Arthur’s loan spell into a permanent agreement for £32million because he has turned out to be a flop.


Three major Premier League clubs want to sign this£80M England midfielder but which one is his best option?

Mason Mount Chelsea

According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United will launch a bid to sign Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount thanks to his doubtful contract situation.

Arsenal and Liverpool have already shown an interest in signing the England international and it looks like Manchester United have joined the bandwagon as well.

Mount’s contract with Chelsea is going to expire next summer and if he does not agree to a new deal then the Blues will sell him off during the upcoming transfer window. They won’t risk holding onto him for one more year and then risk losing him as a free agent.

Rumours suggest, Mount is not happy with the terms of his new deal and could look to leave in the summer which is probably why Man United want to sign him up for around £55m.

Which move will Mason Mount choose if he decides to leave Chelsea?

Mount has seen a dip in form this season but he is still one of the best young attacking midfielders in England. He’s only 24 years old and has plenty of time to get his career back on track.

Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United are all top clubs but if he wants to level up then he should join Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Yes, Liverpool will most likely miss out on Champions League football next season but they are badly in need of a new attacking midfielder so a player like Mason Mount will feel wanted at Anfield. Thiago hasn’t had a great impact in England and there’s no way Klopp will go into next season relying on Thiago and Henderson as his attack-minded midfielders.

Arsenal have Odegaard while Man United have Bruno Fernandes which means Mount will have to fight for his place in the first XI at these clubs.

Chelsea want around £80-85 million for the midfielder but there’s no way they are getting paid that much because Mount has only one year left on his contract. A fee of around £55-60 million should be enough to strike a deal and we seriously think Liverpool is his best bet.

Man United know very well that he’s going to be wanted man from next month which is probably why Ten Hag wants to wrap this deal early. Liverpool are currently focused on signing Mac Allister and until that’s done, we don’t think Klopp will sign another midfielder.

If Mason Mount wants Champions League football then Arsenal and Manchester United are his two options but if he wants consistent game time then Liverpool is the way to go.
