Melgarejo is expected to join Liverpool on a season-long loan from Benefica, ESPN FC reports.

Liverpool is using a "try-before-you-buy" strategy with Melgarejo, taking him on loan with an option to buy him at the end of the season for roughly 7 million if they choose. It may take a few days to process, as Melgarejo will need to apply for a work permit to join the Reds.
