Liverpool pair Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk are training in Portugal.

Van Dijk has been sidelined since October with a ruptured cruciate ligament suffered after a wild challenge by Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford during a Merseyside derby at Goodison Park.

Gomez then joined his fellow centre back on the treatment table around a month later when he suffered a knee injury while on England duty.

Liverpool are hopeful they will be able to take part in pre-season training from the off when manager Jurgen Klopp's men reconvene later in the summer, reports the Daily Mail.

Gomez and Van Dijk have been completing their rehabilitation together and the pair have taken their recovery programme to Portugal as they close in on a return.

England star Gomez posted a series of clips of him and Van Dijk being put through their paces on a training pitch.
