Liverpool handed timely midfield boost before Nottingham Forest

The Reds’ engine room ranks are in line for imminent reinforcement

Premier League outfit Liverpool have, on Thursday, been afforded a boost on the personnel front.

The subject of the treatment table has of course taken its place front and centre in the headlines on the red half of Merseyside for several weeks now.

This comes as Jurgen Klopp and co. have been forced to navigate a woeful stretch of luck when it comes to injuries.

The likes of Joel Matip, Ibrahima Konate, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Thiago Alcantara, Curtis Jones, Diogo Jota and Naby Keita have all been forced into respective spells on the sidelines of late.

As alluded to above, though, on Thursday, at long last, an imminent return to the club’s midfield ranks has been confirmed.

The player ramping up preparations for a spot back amongst Jurgen Klopp’s matchday setup? Naby Keita.

This comes with a hamstring complaint having restricted the former RB Leipzig standout to just a solitary appearance, off the bench in the Community Shield all the way back in July.

This evening, though, a series of photos have surfaced online, showcasing Keita in full training alongside the rest of Liverpool’s squad.

It now remains to be seen whether or not the 27-year-old is deemed fit enough to play a part in the Reds’ Premier League meeting with Nottingham Forest this weekend.
