The Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern cannot wait to see how Jurgen Klopp builds on last week’s win at Manchester City when they play Swansea later this evening. Indeed, it’s been a long wait for our resident Reds, who are eager to see their stars turn out another top performance.
Despite losing Philippe Coutinho, it’s largely been a positive month all-around for the Anfield giants. The signing of Virgil van Dijk will hopefully have a transformative effect on the side and, according to a report from World Football Index, Liverpool have agreed a second January deal.
They claim those on Merseyside have agreed terms to sign Colombia U20 international full-back, Anderson Arroyo from second-tier side, Fortaleza. The pacey full-back is understood to have impressed the Reds during a trial and an agreement is thought to have been reached, with the youngster reportedly likely to head to Spanish side Mallorca while he awaits qualification for a visa to play on these shores.
It’s also claimed that Liverpool have been tracking Arroyo for a while now and, having been impressed with his progress, have wrapped up a deal early, it seems.
Excellent work from those behind the scenes at Anfield. The full-back positions have become increasingly important in recent years, as well as one as Liverpool have struggled in, so scouring the globe for potential long-term options is a wonderful idea.
If Arroyo can keep developing, the Reds might have their full-back for the next 10 years.
