- Arthur has missed the majority of the campaign after suffering a thigh tear
- The Brazilian has been putting in extra work in a bid to return to full fitness
- He now feels he is ready to return to the first-team squad to help his teammates
Liverpool on loan midfielder Arthur has been putting in extra training at home in a bid to help his teammates.
The Brazilian has had a frustrating time since joining from Juventus last summer with a thigh tear blighting his season. The 26-year old has been forced to watch from the sidelines as Liverpool struggled to find form with supporters crying out for midfield reinforcements.
Arthur returned to first team training on February 9 but has been doing double sessions several times a week, all coordinated with the club and his personal team.
Liverpool have been happy with Arthur's progress and attitude and the player believes he is finally ready to be in the first team squad as they take on Wolves tonight and face Manchester United on Sunday.
Arthur played 90 minutes in Liverpool U21s 7-1 win over Leicester City at the weekend and left U21’s manager Barry Lewtas suitably impressed.

Lewtas said: 'It’s brilliant, really. Look at Arthur, he’s had a fantastic career, played at some top clubs and played with some top players and at the minute is just finding his way back from injury.
'It’s great for our lads to see someone of that level working his way back to fitness and is willing to come down and play.
'I think it shows unbelievable humility. It shows someone who is desperate to get back fit, get playing and find rhythm because he wants to try and play. I think it reveals an awful lot of character.'
Wolves' Matheus Nunes and Borussia Dortmund's Jude Bellingham remain among the top transfer targets for Liverpool but Arthur still hopes to make a strong impression on Jurgen Klopp before the end of the season in the knowledge he will most likely leave Juventus permanently in the summer.
Liverpool also want a centre back in the summer and have watched the likes of Colombia U20 international Kevin Mantilla, 19, from Independiente Santa Fe as they assess options.
