Jurgen Klopp is to have a healthy sized squad at his fingertips when his players return for pre-season next week, with 27 first-team members expected to be available on day one.
Preparations for the 2021/22 season are to kick off on July 12, just a day after the conclusion of both the Euros and Copa America – that could see a handful of Reds involved.
It means the likes of Jordan Henderson, Thiago, Alisson, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino will not be present when Klopp, his backroom staff and his players reconvene as they hope to make it to the final day.
Nor will other Reds involved in the Euros, with Andy Robertson, Diogo Jota, Harry Wilson, Neco Williams and Xherdan Shaqiri all to transition back into the group, unless transfers are agreed in the interim.
But Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Trent Alexander-Arnold are to be among the senior faces making their return, where each could have a tailored programme after respective injuries – as per David Lynch.
Academy players could also supplement a squad that will continue to be tweaked as the week’s tick by, with Reds hoping for a number of new faces to arrive in the transfer window.
Liverpool have yet to confirm their summer schedule, but a handful of friendlies are to be lined up in preparation for the important campaign ahead and give fans their first look at Konate and co.
