Juventus keen on signing £140,000-a-week Liverpool midfielder

Juventus are among the teams reportedly keeping tabs on Jordan Henderson’s contract situation at Merseyside club as his future looks more uncertain by the day.

Negotiations have stalled between club captain Jordan and Liverpool, and with only two years left on his current deal the Reds are left with a dilemma and must decide whether or not to try to persuade the midfielder to stay, but risk losing him on a free In 2023, or to cash in on him now.

The situation is serious enough for some of Europe’s top teams to be keeping tabs on the situation of the England star, who is currently on holiday after helping his country to the Euro 2020 final. The Bianconeri are the latest team to have reportedly thrown their name in the hat after PSG and Atletico Madrid were also linked with a move.

PSG coach Mauricio Pocchetino has always been a big admirer of England international. Wages won’t be a problem for PSG, while he would also be reacquainted with his ex-Liverpool midfield partner Gini Wijnaldum, who left Liverpool on a free transfer this summer.

Atletico Madrid centre-forward Luis Suarez is a good friend of Jordan’s and it is thought that the English midfielder would relish the opportunity to play with the Uruguayan striker again.

This situation also indicates that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp doesn’t have the full say on deal renewals. US owners Fenway Sports Group (FGS) assist club staff in financial decisions, just like they did with discussions with Dutch playmaker Gini Wijnaldum.
