The Brazil international, who remained on Merseyside with compatriots Alisson Becker and Fabinho after the South American World Cup qualifiers were postponed due to Covid-19 restrictions, has missed the last three matches with a knee problem.
However, the forward was pictured participating in a group session on Monday at the club’s AXA training complex.
Other senior players involved who are not on international duty included Trent Alexander-Arnold, dropped by England, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner, Naby Keita, Adrian, Nat Phillips and Ben Davies – who has still to make his first-team debut after signing from Preston in the winter transfer window.
Manager Jurgen Klopp also drafted in a number of academy players on the fringes of the senior set-up to make up the numbers.
