Liverpool have been handed a huge boost, with James Pearce confirming that defender Trent Alexander-Arnold will return to full training this week.
The 22-year-old Englishman has been absent since injuring his calf in the 1-1 draw away to Manchester City in November, prior to the international break.
James Milner and Neco Williams have filled in admirably at right-back during that time, but neither possess Trent’s world-class ability in that position.
Following the Reds’ 1-0 win over the Eredivisie giants Ajax on Tuesday night, Pearce confirmed on a Q&A for The Athletic that the right-back’s return is imminent: “Should be back in full training later this week.”
This is a huge positive for manager Jurgen Klopp, suggesting his player could be available for Sunday’s PL clash with Wolves at Anfield.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s outfit are a hugely dangerous attacking outfit, with youngster Pedro Neto likely to take up the left-sided attacking role.
The thought of Milner or Williams up against him is a scary one, in comparison to Trent, so the hope is that he is back.
In other news, Ajax talent Perr Schuurs says he is aware of interest from the Reds is happy to remain with the Dutch side.
Perr played against Liverpool on Tuesday in the Champions League and speaking after the game, the 21-year-old was quizzed about his future.
“I hear and read it [Liverpool rumours] too,” the Dutch defender told SBS6.
“It’s my first season as a basic player at Ajax. I want to play here for a few more seasons and win prizes. I’m not really working on that yet.”
