Jordan Henderson interested in Juventus as Liverpool consider selling him
A number of top European clubs have been made aware of Henderson’s situation and are waiting to strike if he becomes available.
Liverpool are in a quandary as they don’t want a repeat of the Georginio Wijnaldum fiasco after he lost the midfielder at large after canceling his contract with PSG this summer.
Atletico Madrid and PSG have already been touted as potential landing spots for Henderson should Liverpool choose to cash in on him this summer, but the subway claim Juventus are also keeping an eye on the 31-year-old.
Henderson is one of only five players to have played ten seasons in the Premier League for Liverpool and he has been a driving force behind the success achieved during Jurgen Klopp’s reign.
Henderson only has two years to go and talks about an extension with the club have failed
The Liverpool boss has come to rely on Henderson as an important senior member of his team and it is believed he would like him to stay with the club.
But there is now a real possibility of him leaving for the summer, with interest from PSG, Atletico and Juventus.
PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino is a big fan of Henderson’s aggressive style and wants to add more dynamism to a squad that is being assembled to win the Champions League.

The Uruguayan is a close friend of Henderson and it is thought the English midfielder would seize the opportunity to play with him again after enjoying three years together at Anfield.
Klopp has made it clear that he wants to keep Henderson as he sees him as a leader, but it may not be in his hands. The club’s owners, Fenway Sports Group (FSG), are assisting transfer chiefs with financial decisions as they have played a part in failed negotiations with Wijnaldum and there may be no place for Henderson at the club in the near future with plans to move the squad. to revise with young talent.
