Liverpool defender is on course for return.
Dejan Lovren is in contention to make his first start of the season for Liverpool tonight.
Lovren has not featured for his club since he helped Croatia reach the World Cup final.
The defender has been out of action with a stomach problem, and is now on course to return.
He could feature in Liverpool's Carabao Cup tie with Chelsea this evening.
Manager Jurgen Klopp provided the update at his press conference on Tuesday.
Liverpool paid Southampton £20 million to sign Lovren in 2014 and after a poor start he has gradually got better and better.
The Reds have not missed Lovren, thanks to the impressive form of Joe Gomez, who has established himself as a regular alongside Virgil van Dijk.
At the weekend Joel Matip stepped in and impressed, scoring and keeping a clean sheet against Southampton.
Despite helping Liverpool reach the Champions League final last season, Lovren still splits opinion.
Here is a look at how fans react on Twitter to Klopp's update...

Him and Mingolet!!! League cup was fun while it lasted— Fletcher (@fletcher_dyer) September 25, 2018
Excited to see Lovren back if he is fully fit. Had some great performances at the tail end of last season and in the WC. Think he could get even better with REAL competition from Gomez now.#LFC— Toro - LFC (@Toro_LFC) September 25, 2018
Looking forward to watching Lovren play at anfield. Hasn’t featured since his impressive showings at the WC. Won’t be easy for him to get into the team ahead of Gomez though. #LFC— Abhishek Krishnan (@Abhi9715) September 25, 2018
