Jamie O’Hara would ‘love to see’ £20m star at Tottenham, but thinks move is unlikely
Jamie O’Hara has said he would love Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson at Tottenham, but has admitted he thinks any kind of move is unlikely.
Reds midfielder Henderson, 31, has cemented himself in Anfield folklore for his success at the Merseyside club.
The England international has captained his club to both the Champions League and Premier League in recent years. In addition, he’s had a meteoric rise from zero to hero since a transfer from Sunderland for £20million back in 2011.
However, current reports have put some question marks against his future.
The Athletic reports there has been no progress made this summer despite talks between Liverpool and their captain Henderson about a contract extension. His current deal expires in 2023.
The report explains talks are still ongoing, but it’s a “sensitive situation” with priorities elsewhere in the squad right now.
O’Hara has weighed in with the comment that he would love the Liverpool talisman at former club Spurs.
“I’d be surprise if they get it done (a new contract). It would be a big loss if he went. I’d love to see him at Tottenham, but I can’t see if we could ever convince him. He’s still got loads to offer the Premier League” O’Hara told talkSPORT.
Liverpool need to resolve Jordan Henderson future, Tottenham would love someone like him
For Liverpool, it’s a no-brainer to resolve Henderson’s future.
The tireless central midfielder gives so much on and off the pitch at Anfield, so they need to avoid the risk of losing him.
In contrast, Spurs could do with a talisman in the centre of the park.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has shown glimpses he can play a similar role for them, but overall it’s a team lacking leadership.
It’ll be intriguing to see how new Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo builds his team.
