Liverpool fans have criticized the club’s owners after reacting angrily to their final day chase of Juventus midfielder Arthur Melo.

Captain Jordan Henderson came out injured in the 71st minute of Wednesday night’s 2-1 win against Newcastle, with Jurgen Klopp confirming that his skipper received a ‘serious’ knock.

The Reds manager said: ‘Obviously Hendo is injured, he has a hamstring’ [injury], which definitely doesn’t help. I do not think so. [It was] so serious he couldn’t go any further, so it wasn’t a tactical change.’

Asked if the club would do business on deadline day, the German added: “I don’t think so, but as long as there is time, we shouldn’t close the door completely.”

Liverpool are now on the cusp of closing a loan for Brazil international Arthur Melo to solve their growing midfield problems.

Klopp described the damage as ‘serious’ – the Liverpool captain will be scanned in the next 24 hours – meaning the German had no choice but to move.

Fellow midfielders Thiago, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are also injured, leaving only Fabinho, teenager Harvey Elliott, 36-year veteran James Milner and Curtis Jones, who has not played a single minute of competition this year, as options.

Contacts were made with Arthur and Juventus in the early hours of Thursday morning and talks have continued in Turin over a deal that will see the former Barcelona player move to Anfield for the remainder of the season.

The club responded to their midfield injury crisis - Thiago, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are also out - with a deadline day chase from Arthur, but fans are not happy

He is expected to arrive in Merseyside later on Thursday afternoon.

Arthur has been on the margins at Juventus, with his style not matching the approach preferred by coach Max Allegri, and has received offers from Wolves, Sporting Lisbon and Valencia in the past month.

Of the three, Sporting appealed most because they played in the Champions League.

But supporters have been enraged by the ‘useless’ FSG owners who are chasing the Brazilian, calling him a ‘backward pass trader’.

One said, ‘Useless. They had 3 months and draw Arthur Melo on loan. INCOMPETENT T**TS.’

And Reds fans quickly went online to express their dismay at the deadline chase

Another said: ‘I thought he was s***e? Bizarre move this.’

A third posted: ‘Sideways and backwards pass the merchant. God help us.’

Another fan continued: ‘All the midfielders we’ve been associated with and this is the ‘right one’? Series of a panic loan because Hendo got injured last night.’

Another said, “Geez, we just hit rock bottom.”

A sixth placed: ‘Please be the venue and really go to Everton. PLEASE.’
