Report: Juventus want Liverpool mainstay
Juventus have reportedly joined the race to sign Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, whose future is now up in the air.
The Metro claim that the Old Lady are keen on the 31-year-old England international.
Henderson has two years remaining on his current contract with Liverpool. However, the Athletic recently revealed that talks over a new deal have stalled.
Liverpool are close to renewing new deals for the likes of Alisson Becker and Fabinho. However, no real progress has been made between the club and Henderson over fresh terms.
Henderson is one of Liverpool’s most important players and was key to the Reds lifting both the UEFA Champions League in 2018 and the club’s first Premier League title in 2020.
Indeed, as per the Metro and the Athletic, PSG and Atletico Madrid are already keeping tabs on Henderson’s situation.
Moreover, there are parallels between Henderson’s situation and that of former Liverpool star Georginio Wijnaldum.
The Dutch international failed to agree to new terms with the Merseyside club, resulting in the midfielder leaving Anfield when his contract ran out this summer before signing a three-year deal with PSG.
Liverpool fans are desperate for the club to renew Henderson’s contract. But with talks hardly progressing on a new deal, there could be a chance that the Merseyside captain could leave in the coming years.
