Jordan Henderson accepts Al-Ettifaq’s offer, Liverpool to discuss transfer fee with Steven Gerrard’s side.
Jordan Henderson verbally agrees to move in principle and agrees to the contract. He has even spoken to manager Jurgen Klopp and the coach has given him the “green light” to make the move.
Liverpool is demanding a transfer fee for Jordan Henderson. The two clubs will now work on valuing the player before giving him the go-ahead to fly to Saudi Arabia.
Liverpool wants to sign Southampton’s Romeo Lavia as a possible replacement for Henderson and is ready to submit a bid for the midfielder who is around £50 million ($63m). Moreover, Al-Ittihad are reportedly preparing a £40m bid for Fabinho.
Jordan Henderson will leave Liverpool after twelve years
It seems that after making 492 appearances for Liverpool, Jordan Henderson might finally bid adieu to Anfield. After Steven Gerrard’s departure in 2015, he wore Liverpool’s armband and led the side to Premier League and Champions League glory.
However, his move to Saudi Arabia has horrified a section of fans as a Liverpool LGBTQ+ group are “appalled and concerned” over his decision to play in a country where homosexuality is illegal.
