LFC News: Nunez Trains, Wolfsburg Defender Linked

Tuesday brought some positive news for Liverpool fans as Darwin Nunez was pictured in training after missing two games with a toe issue. There were doubts over the Uruguayan’s involvement for the remainder of the season, but there are now hopes he could be fit for Sunday. It is unclear at this stage whether Nunez was in full training or only parts of the session, but he was wearing boots, rather than trainers, and took in ball work as well as running drills. With five days still to go until Liverpool head to Southampton, there is every chance Nunez will be in the squad.

In terms of transfer news, Liverpool have been linked with a move for Wolfsburg centre-back Micky van de Ven according to inews, with incoming sporting director Jorg Schmadtke said to be focusing on the German market in his short-term stay. Reports linking Alexis Mac Allister with a move to Man City have been rubbished, with Liverpool still said to be the front-runners for the midfielder. Mason Mount is said to be “more likely” to join the Reds than remain at Chelsea next season, with the majority of the “transfer groundwork” already done by Liverpool.

Elsewhere, Chelsea currently have the league’s biggest wage bill despite falling into the bottom half of the table for the first time since 1996 (the Mirror). Dean Smith believes his side have ramped up the pressure on Everton after earning a point away to Newcastle, an exciting day at the foot of the table for us to look forward to at least (Leicester Mercury).

For some Bobby content from the weekend, there is a video of him soaking in the adulation from the Kop for the last time. If you are looking to squeeze every last drop of football before the season draws to a close, you can catch Real Sociedad as they close in a Champions League place for the first time in a decade. Almeria are the visitors for this one and all of the action is available on Viaplay Sports 1 at 6.30pm (BST).
