Liverpool will face a decision over defender Anderson Arroyo’s time at the club after the centre-back completed his EIGHTH loan spell at Anfield.

Arroyo has had a nomadic career with the Reds since being signed just over six years ago. He still had to earn a work permit and so could not perform for any of the Academy sides, despite being only 18 when he arrived.




Now the 24-year-old Colombian is approaching the final year of his contract, having extended his contract in the summer of 2022. The Reds must move the player this summer or risk him leaving for nothing within 12 months.

Arroyo has played in the Spanish second division for the past three seasons. He started last season at FC Andorra before moving to Burgos mid-season. The defender helped Alaves – who beat the Reds in the 2001 UEFA Cup final – to promotion to La Liga in 2022/23 after spending the previous season at Mirandes.

He was immediately loaned out to Mallorca after signing for Liverpool from Colombian side Foraleza in February 2018 and spent the remainder of the season with their B team. He continued his development the following campaign at Gent in Belgium alongside Taiwo Awoniyi – now at Nottingham Forest – but did not play for the seniors, and then spent 2019/20 with Mlada Boleslav in Bulgaria but made only two senior appearances.

In the 2020/21 season, Arroyo enjoyed regular minutes as a starter for Salamanca in the third tier of Spanish football. He has represented Colombia at Under-17, U20 and U23 levels.
