The attacking midfielder is yet to play for the Reds this season after suffering a thigh injury in a pre-season clash with Atletico Madrid.
Lallana spent time in Qatar last week as part of his recovery programme but returned to Melwood on Monday.
Boss Jurgen Klopp told liverpoolfc.com: “It’s absolutely good news. I cannot say now, but maybe after the next international break he could be back.
“It would be fantastic for us, of course. Everybody knows what kind of a quality player he is.”
Klopp saw his attacking options limited further last week by the loss of Sadio Mane to a hamstring injury.
