Flanagan has plenty of time on his hands after being ruled out for up to nine months following knee surgery at the end of April.
The 22-year-old could return to action in the New Year, but may struggle to re-establish himself as a first-team regular at Anfield following the arrivals of Nathaniel Clyne and Joe Gomez in the summer.
Flanagan: Liverpool's forgotten man
Flanagan was performing well before his knee injury and made 25 appearances under Brendan Rodgers during the 2013-14 campaign - the season which saw Liverpool come agonisingly close to winning their first league title since 1990.
The Liverpool-born full-back also earned a call-up to the England senior side and made his international debut against Ecuador in June 2014.
Roy Hodgson named Flanagan on the standby list for the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil after the young defender narrowly missed out on a place in the final 23-man squad.
Flanagan has become something of a forgotten man at Anfield after failing to make a single appearance for the Reds last season.
But if he can rediscover his best form following his untimely injury, the likes of Clyne and Gomez will need to be at their best to retain their places in Liverpool’s starting line-up.
