However he’s struggled with injuries since then, with him failing to play the following season and spending time on loan at Burnley last term.

So far this season he’s made just one appearance, in the League Cup in September.

A Liverpool FC spokesperson said: ‘The club has been made aware of an alleged incident involving a member of the first team playing squad. We will be making no further comment on the matter while the process is ongoing with the relevant authorities.’
