Liverpool striker Fernando Torres has travelled to Valencia to have a second opinion on his groin injury.
The Spanish striker returned to Liverpool’s Melwood training ground on Friday after undergoing secondary tests in Spain amid fears that he may require surgery for a hernia.
Torres visited a Liverpool hospital on Thursday for further checks after flying back to Merseyside with the rest of the squad following the 1-1 draw with Lyon in the Champions League.
The former Atletico Madrid player then visited a Spanish specialist who has worked with him before and is also favoured by Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez from his time as Los Che boss.
It is now expected the 25-year-old will do light training over the weekend and could still play against Birmingham on Monday night.
