Szoboszlai injury & PSV winger linked – Latest LFC News

Dominik Szoboszlai‘s injury was a big focus on Tuesday, a day that saw reports of “concrete interest” in a PSV winger and Trent Alexander-Arnold launch his brilliant new project.

 

Szoboszlai reports disputed

Liverpool’s No. 8 was left out of the trip to Arsenal due to a reoccurrence of his hamstring injury that forced him to miss four games earlier this year.

Early on Tuesday morning, reports in Szoboszlai’s native Hungary claimed he could miss up to four weeks, which would rule him out of the next six games – arun that includes the Carabao Cup final.

It was an understandable take considering his previous absence stretched close to a month, but that report has since been disputed by the likes of journalist Bence Bocsak and the Echo’s Ian Doyle, who stated Liverpool “have yet to put any timescale on it.”

Nevertheless, Szoboszlai remains, at the very least, sidelined for the short-term and we will likely here more as the week progresses.
