Salah rejoined the Reds on Monday after a period in self-isolation.

Manager Jurgen Klopp says Mohamed Salah could return to Liverpool's starting XI when they host Atalanta in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Salah missed the Reds' 3-0 win against Leicester City on Sunday after testing positive for COVID-19 while on international duty earlier this month but tested negative just before the match at Anfield over the weekend.

However, the Egypt international has tested negative again and is set to face the Italians tomorrow.

"Mo trained and looked really good and he gave a negative test like the rest. He is available [for selection] and we will have to see what we can do with that," Klopp said as Sky Sports reported.

When asked about Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara, and Xherdan Shaqiri, the German replied: "All the rest - no news. We will see. I don't want to speak too much about it because I have no idea who Atalanta can bring - so why should we give any information?"

Speaking of Wednesday night's visitors, Klopp added: "Atalanta is a threat even without a point to prove. The last game against them was a very special night. We played exceptionally well and did pretty much everything right, so many things came together.

"But that has nothing to do with tomorrow night. They are a top team who play a special way. I expect problems, always like this, and we must find the solutions.

"They work really hard and their man-marking system is tough to play against, so we will see who we can line up with."
