A Liverpool stalwart might make an early exit from the club.
Jordan Henderson is under contract for two more years and is said to want an extension.
But talks have reportedly not progressed, potentially opening the door for outside suitors.
TOP STORY – HENDERSON COULD LEAVE ANFIELD
Completing a new deal for Henderson is reportedly not a priority for Liverpool’s ownership this off-season, and The Athletic says a move could be on the cards for the England international.
The report cites Paris Saint-Germain head coach Mauricio Pochettino as a long-time admirer of the midfielder and notes Henderson’s close friendship with Atletico Madrid‘s Luis Suarez as potentially weighing in favour of a move to one of those clubs.
Liverpool are said to be eager to get something in return for Henderson, should he leave, after watching Georginio Wijnaldum move to PSG on a free transfer last month.
Interesting to see if clubs (inc #PSG & possibly #Atleti) try to capitalise on Jordan Henderson contract impasse by moving for him this summer. No dispute between 31yo & Liverpool but negotiations are not advancing so big decisions loom @TheAthleticUK #LFC https://t.co/RkhorIrSEy
