Liverpool announce pre-season training camp with Van Dijk & Gomez set to go

Liverpool have announced the club's pre-season training camp in Austria, with long-term injured centre-backs Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all named in the travelling party.

The Reds' £36million new summer signing Ibrahima Konate is also listed in the 34-man squad travelling on July 12.

Van Dijk and Gomez have not played since October and November respectively after sustaining serious knee injuries but will join up with the squad - missing players who were, or still are, involved in Euro 2020 and the Copa America - at their base in the state of Tyrol.

Matip has not featured since sustaining an ankle ligament injury in Liverpool's 3-1  Premier League win over Tottenham in January.

Konate will meet his new team-mates for the first time following his move from RB Leipzig.

Right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold, who had to pull out of England's Euro 2020 squad on the eve of the tournament with a thigh muscle tear, is also in the squad along with 11 academy players.

'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 Liverpool's website.

'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.'
