Darwin Nunez is in doubt for Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Brighton on Saturday after missing training this week, according to The Times.
The 23-year-old striker has missed several sessions due to an unspecified issue and could be ruled out of contention for this weekend’s clash.
Additionally, Jurgen Klopp could be without Nunes for Liverpool’s FA Cup replay with Wolves at the Molineux on Tuesday.

His absence would give the Liverpool manager a selection dilemma as both Luiz Diaz and Diogo Jota have been ruled out with long-term injures.
Both players are likely to be out of action until at least March with respective knee and calf injuries, while Roberto Firmino is also out of the picture for Liverpool.
Klopp may be forced to call upon his new signing Cody Gakpo. The 23-year-old signed for Liverpool for £44million just after Christmas.

He signed a five-and-half year deal from PSV and made his debut on the left wing during Liverpool’s 2-2 FA Cup draw with Wolves at Anfield.
However, he was deployed centrally by Louis van Gaal while playing for the Netherlands during the 2022 World Cup.
Therefore, Klopp may be forced to do the same during their Premier League clash at the Amex Stadium on Saturday.
Liverpool are in desperate need of some points as they are currently sitting sixth in the table – seven points behind Manchester United, who are occupying the final Champions League spot.
