Arthur Melo will wear No.29 for Liverpool during his loan spell from Juventus.

The Brazilian completed a season-long switch to Anfield on transfer deadline day, subject to international clearance, bolstering Jürgen Klopp’s midfield options.

And Arthur has selected No.29 to wear for the Reds, a jersey that has been vacant since previous incumbent Dominic Solanke left the club.

“The number 29 is special to me, it was my number at my first professional team Gremio. It brought me a lot of luck so maybe there’s an element of superstition around the number 29,” he explained.

“It’s a number that I really like, it brought me a lot of luck and hopefully it will do the same here at Liverpool.”
