Liverpool fans are gushing with excitement over the fact that they will practically have five new signings next season.

The Reds have struggled heavily with injuries this term, arguably costing them their place in the title race.

All three of their main centre-backs have been out for at least half the season, with Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez both absent since October and November respectively, while Joel Matip was a later casualty.

In February, Reds skipper Henderson had surgery on a groin issue, but is not back in training yet.

Meanwhile, Harvey Elliot is coming to the end of his loan spell at Blackburn, where he has impressed this season.

Elliot has managed to get regular football in the Championship, making 39 appearances, and should be ready for first-team football on his return.

And in a bit of light-hearted fun, fans have revealed their excitement to have practically five new signings for next season when they all return to action.

“What a transfer window!” one wrote.

A second added: “All free too. Michael Edwards is a genius.”

“Surely we can’t have the same luck next season with injuries,” a third tweeted. “We’ve been decimated with injuries this season.”

Jurgen Klopp provided a brief update on all of his injury setbacks ahead of tonight’s game against Leeds.

“They all are [on track], Joe as well,” he said when asked about rehab footage on Gomez’s Instagram.

“Joe is outside running now and all these kind of things, which is obviously always a big step after all injuries.

“He looks fine when he is running, no real reaction in the knee, which is very important. It obviously still takes time but he’s in a good way. Like Virg, Joel and Hendo [are].”

    "I don't know,” the German added. “He's not in training yet – I think we can say that and all the rest we will see.

    "It makes just not too much sense, and I don't know it really, to make this kind of – in German we say 'water-level announcements' – running commentaries.

    "I don't know. He looks good, that's the good news, but not in training yet."
