Liverpool Ace To Sign New Contract Amid Transfer Links

Liverpool Ace To Sign New Contract Amid Transfer Links

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool are waiting on the fitness of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane ahead of Saturday's clash with Huddersfield.

Speaking on Thursday, Wagner played down suggestions that Liverpool might be without a string of top names after the likes of Mohamed Salah (groin), Virgil van Dijk (rib) and Naby Keita (muscle) suffered injuries on global duty.

Mohamed Salah was forced to return home early after suffering a groin injury during Egypt's African Cup of Nations game with Swaziland while James Milner has been nursing a hamstring strain but the duo both trained yesterday so should be in contention against Huddersfield.

He said: "He (Van Dijk) spoke to the manager".

With the injury, Mane joins Mo Salah, Naby Keita and Virgil Van Dijk as Reds to be injured during the global break.

A source close to Keita in Guinea told ESPN FC that the player is expected to be ruled out for at least two weeks with his hamstring injury.

Separately, sources inside Saudi Arabia said that any punitive measures directed its way would generate larger counter-measures. Cengiz also said Turkish authorities had not told her about any recordings and Khashoggi was officially "still missing".

Van Dijk, meanwhile, has been battling broken ribs for several weeks, according to Netherlands boss Ronald Koeman, and sat out Tuesday's friendly with Belgium.

The star pair have overcome respective muscle and rib complaints to give Jurgen Klopp some welcome relief from the injury headaches that mounted over the global break.

He said: "I have known Jurgen long enough, I know he loves to use smoke screens".

But Wagner is not convinced any of them will miss the match at 5.30pm on Saturday.

"The only thing we are pretty sure is that Naby [Keita] will not be available with all the rest, we have to see how it develops, that's it pretty much".

The striker has scored four times so far, averaging a goal every 51 minutes on the pitch, and was named September Player of the Month by fans.
