However, the two parties have been unable to make any progress.

As a result there is uncertainty about the player’s future. The Mail went as far as to claim he could be sold.

PSG are said to be admirers, along with Atletico Madrid with Luis Suarez keen to reunite with his former teammate.

Arsenal favourites for Jordan Henderson

Aside from clubs in Europe there could be a side closer to home looking to take advantage.

According to the Daily Star, as cited by Sky Sports, Arsenal are favourites to sign Jordan Henderson.

The Gunners will likely be looking for further bodies in midfield following the imminent exit of Granit Xhaka.

What RTK has to say

Liverpool selling Jordan Henderson just doesn’t seem likely.

The Reds can’t afford to lose him and Gini Wijnaldum in the same window.

Both players have been so influential on and off the pitch.

To see them both leave in quick succession would be a massive shock and a massive mistake.

Fingers crossed this story dies down soon.
