Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has been ruled out of the club's pre-season trip to Norway due to a foot injury.
The Uruguay international had been set to step up his preparations for the new season when the Reds take on Valerenga on Wednesday, but is now set to have a scan on his foot to asses the extent of the injury.
Suarez has been the subject of a £42 million bid from Liverpool Premier League rivals Arsenal this summer which was rejected by the Merseyside outfit.
Following the rejection of the Gunners latest transfer offer, reports suggest Suarez is thought be considering handing in a transfer request as he looks to force through a big money move to the north London outfit.
Suarez and his representatives are also believed to be contemplating taking legal action against Liverpool, after believing he had the option to join Arsenal after they matched his alleged buy-out clause.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has recently hit out at his managerial counterpart at Arsenal, claiming the club have lacked class in their pursuit of the forward.
A number of other first-team squad members miss the trip to Norway including defensive trio Glen Johnson, Daniel Agger and Martin Srktel.
Liverpool squad in full:
Jones, Enrique, Toure, Alberto, Gerrard, Aspas, Coutinho, Assaidi, Henderson, Coates, Downing, Spearing, Lucas, Mignolet, Allen, Borini, Sterling, Kelly, Flanagan, Ibe, Wisdom
