Liverpool have added Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez to their preseason training squad.
Van Dijk and Gomez plus new signing Ibrahima Konate will all kick off preseason at Liverpool’s training camp in Austria on Monday.
Van Dijk and Gomez have not played since October and November respectively after sustaining serious knee injuries but will join up with a 34-man squad – missing players who were, or still are, involved in Euro 2020 and the Copa America – at their base in the state of Tyrol.
“We look forward to going to Austria again for the start of our pre-season. All the conditions to prepare the team there are just at a very high level,” assistant manager Pepijn Lijnders told liverpoolfc.com.
“We will use this to go back to basics. When you ask a lot from your players you have to give a lot as well – and we find all of this in Austria.”
