Brazilian duo Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino, who took part in the Copa America, will join Emre Can and Tiago Ilori, who were involved in the European Under-21s Championship.

They’re expected to be joined by new signing Christian Benteke, with Liverpool’s club doctor flying back from Adelaide on Sunday evening to conduct a medical with the Belgian in London on Monday.

Earlier on Sunday it was revealed that Liverpool had finalised the payment terms with Aston Villa for the £32.5 million deal for Benteke. The Reds will pay £16 million up front.

Benteke, Coutinho, Firmino, Can and Ilori will join the trio of players left behind at Melwood – Fabio Borini, Jose Enrique and Mario Balotell, who are all available for transfer.

The final game of the pre-season tour takes place in Malaysia on Friday, with the rest of the squad heading back to Merseyside on Saturday.
