      Jordan Henderson -> Al Ettifaq
      Jul 10, 2023 11:41:30 am

      Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is in "very advanced" talks with a Saudi Arabian club, according to one report.

      33-year-old Henderson made 43 appearances for the Reds in all competitions in 2022/23, including 35 in the Premier League, but faces added competition going into the new campaign following the signings of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai.
      Liverpool's midfield rebuild may not be finished with the £95m outlay either. Reports suggest that Jürgen Klopp and the club hierarchy are in the market for a new 'number 6', having been strongly linked to Southampton's Romeo Lavia in recent days.

      As a result, there is talk that the club may look to sell players before bringing anyone else in — with Liverpool's trio of older midfielders (Thiago, Fabinho and Henderson) speculated as the most likely to be offloaded.

      Now L'Equipe's Loic Tanzi reports that Al-Ettifaq — coached by Steven Gerrard — are looking to convince "several European stars including Henderson" of a move to the Saudi Pro League.
      A move could, in theory, suit both Henderson — who is to see his playing time diminished in 2023/24 — and Liverpool — who are looking to free up their wage bill. However, the player's availability, influence in the dressing room and position as one of the club's leaders would make a deal very surprising. Indeed, were the Reds to go down the route of selling an older player, Thiago — who has been linked with clubs in Turkey and Saudi Arabia — seems more a likely option due to his high wages and injury record.

      No chance hendo is leaving, I get the feeling he wants to prove a point this season to all the doubters.

      Thiago most likely to leave, but even then I fancy him to leave on a free next season.

      Just wasting money again. How many players worth money are we going to let go for free. Its pathetic.

      Wijnaldum
      Origi
      Firmino
      Milner
      Chamberlain
      Keita

      Bar milly all those players were worth at least 15m ... 75m quid . All international footballers 30 or younger. Thiago whilst 31/32 is worth at least 15m as well. Not to mention others who've left for free. We've probably passed up getting on for 100m quid.

      Poor planning. Poor communication and something that needs to be addressed. All players should have been moved on and money recouped. We're a business.

      I know this is a drum that you seem to be banging at the moment, but there are two sides to every story. You can't just get rid of players that don't want to be got rid of. Players can refuse to be transferred. So it's not just as simple as "ship them out".

      I'll just go  out on a limb and say this....there's no way in hell that Jordan Henderson goes to play in the Saudi league.

      A team will have to want to buy them too, so 3 sides to the story. :)

      I think its now pretty standard practice at all levels for players to want to leave on a free, run contract down and get a big pay day.

      wonder how all our optimism will last as Mike Tyson once said we all have a plan and then someone smacks you in the mouth.
      I think the lads and Jürgen would have learned a lot form last season and you cant put a price on experience its why James Milner was so respected by everyone.
      I would love Jordan to pick up the EPL trophy again he has had some terrible luck with injuries now he looks fit as a butchers Dog why not

      He will be our new Milner. Always setting the example. There won't be many if any physically fitter than the captain. Looks like he been working out all summer long.

      Looks like Steven Gerrard or others are having a few words…can’t see it happening personally but maybe there is truth there will only be another midfielder coming in after a sale.

      He's 33. If they are going to double or raise his salary by 50% I think its an attractive offer for him. Could go play there a year or two and potentially come back to Sunderland for a final year.

      Said it in his player thread, losing both him and Milner in the same transfer window would be a real disaster for us. We shouldn’t underestimate the value these lads have off the pitch and on the training ground.

      The chance to move Hendo on was a couple of years ago. Now we need him to become the Milner of this side - limited playing time but the standard setter and the one that leads the cup team.

      Hope there’s nothing in this.
