Liverpool attacker Diogo Jota will reportedly return to training on Wednesday, nearly three months after damaging his knee ligaments.

Diogo Jota is reportedly set to make a return to training with Liverpool this week in a major fitness boost for Jurgen Klopp.

The Portugal international made an impressive start to his Reds career before being struck down by a knee injury in early December.

Jota, who has nine goals in 17 appearances since arriving from Wolverhampton Wanderers, had been in a leg brace until the end of last month.

According to the Daily Mail, however, the 24-year-old has made good strides in recent weeks and has cleared every hurdle so far put in front of him.

The next step for Jota is a return to full training on Wednesday, it is claimed, and he could then be in line to make his return to first-team action as early as Sunday's trip to Sheffield United.

Liverpool have been hampered by a series of injuries to key players this term, with the likes of Joel Matip, Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk, James Milner and now Jordan Henderson all on the sidelines.
