Although a quintet of their stars are still involved in the World Cup, Liverpool reported back for pre-season on Monday, with new signings Fabinho and Naby Keita joining those uninvolved in global duty this summer.

Steven Gerrard believes former club Liverpool are realistic Premier League title contenders going into the new season.

"I am happy", he told LFCTV. That's clear." "So, from this point of view, from my side everything is fine.

Karius was found to have suffered the head injury five days after he gifted goals to Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale during Real Madrid's 3-1 victory over Liverpool.

It seems Klopp has seen enough to launch a move to try and lure the centre-back to Merseyside and the chance to play with Lovren at Liverpool may be a tempting proposition for Vida.

Bookmakers have Man City as the 8/13 clear favourites to win the 2018/19 Premier League title with Liverpool now a distant 5/1.

They will then travel to the US to take part in the International Cup, where they will face Borussia Dortmund, Manchester City, and Manchester United.

Liverpool have submitted an opening £12m bid to sign Besiktas centre-back Domagoj Vida as Jurgen Klopp looks to secure his third summer signing, according to reports in Turkey via the Mirror. "People want to come and play for this manager, people want to come and play for these supporters", said the former midfielder.

While Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United were reported suitors for Fabinho, he denied being close to signing for the Red Devils.

"If they'll start, I don't know, to be honest".

Jurgen Klopp has kept a low profile since the Champions League final defeat in Kiev, but granted the club's official website an interview this week as he returned to work.

He said via the Press Association: "Karius, to be fair to him, was getting stronger and stronger as the season when on". Is he capable of parking that up, moving on and drawing from the experience? That was, for me, the explanation and I thought: 'OK, come on, we need to check that'.

"The easy thing to do is put a cross through his name and bin him but you have to remember he took Liverpool to the Champions League final".

On the flip side, however, the additions to the squad will certainly mean that some of Liverpool's very talented young players will have to go out on loan to earn some game time.
