Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has suggested that he is confident of having Roberto Firmino available for the Premier League opener with West Ham United.
Firmino has spent part of the summer representing Brazil at the World Cup, but the forward has now returned to Merseyside to begin pre-season training following a break.
Liverpool only have two friendlies remaining before the start of the top flight, but Klopp has indicated that Firmino should be available to face the Hammers.
The German is quoted by Sky Sports News as saying: "It's good to have him here, he looks in good shape, and if possible we will see if he can play against Napoli.
"Training for the outfield players is obviously different than for the goalies, but we want to see him as well against Napoli. We will see for how long. When we start against West Ham, he will have had then two weeks after three weeks off, it should be possible but we will see until then."
Firmino contributed 15 goals and seven assists in 37 Premier League games last season.
