The Spaniard underwent initial scans at the club’s training ground in Kirkby on Monday, and according to the Independent‘s Richard Jolly it is uncertain whether he will be back fit for the Champions League final.
Thiago has suffered an Achilles injury, it is reported, with Jolly claiming that it is “not serious but he is in a race against time to be available.”
With the final in Paris taking place on Saturday night, it will be a tight turnaround for Liverpool’s No. 6.
The 31-year-old has received a call-up to the Spain squad for their UEFA Nations League clashes with Portugal (June 2), the Czech Republic (June 5 and June 12) and Switzerland (June 9) next month, but it remains to be seen whether he will be fit.
“Fab is in training but not with us yet,” he said. “But he will start at the beginning of next week.”
If Fabinho is able to train as soon as Monday or Tuesday, it is realistic that he would be considered for a starting spot in Paris.
Elsewhere, the Press Association’s Carl Markham has reported that Gomez is now due to be back fit in time for the final on May 28.
That will be a boost to Klopp’s squad ranks, with Gomez able to fill in at either centre-back or right-back.
Divock Origi has played his last game for Liverpool after a muscle injury ruled him out.
