101 covered reports on Monday, which claimed Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is edging closer to a move to Saudi Arabian side Al-Ettifaq, where he will rejoin ex-Liverpool star, Steven Gerrard.
Now, the Telegraph report that Henderson is wrestling with the dilemma of whether to quit Liverpool and join the Premier League exodus to Saudi Arabia, with a decision anticipated shortly.
The report goes on to speculate that Jurgen Klopp may want Henderson to stay because of his experience, having already lost James Milner on a free this summer.
However, Henderson leaving may be what is best for the club right now. The Englishman is under contract with Liverpool until the summer of 2025. But with Henderson 33 years of age and past his best, the Reds may be wise to cash on him now for a fee they will not get in two years’ time when Henderson is 35.
Liverpool’s midfield, meanwhile, is undergoing a transformation this summer, with two players already signed and a third expected through the door before the deadline.
A third signing would leave Henderson very much on the fringes of the squad, whilst earning a high wage that could be put toward more incomings.
Henderson joined Liverpool from Sunderland in 2011 and has since become their captain - winning the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup as well.
