But there is already word that Jurgen Klopp wants a long-term solution to his midfield issues.

TUTTOmercatoWEB claim that the Anfield team “would not be afraid” to end the loan deal for Arthur if that happens.

The ex-Juve man has played just 13 minutes of action so far – in the 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Napoli.

Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara, Ibrahima Konate, Naby Keita, Curtis Jones, Fabio Carvalho, Calvin Ramsay and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have all been sidelined.

Thiago was welcomed back against Ajax in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
