Liverpool are going to have to invest in a midfielder this summer. The Reds lost Gini Wijnaldum to PSG and he’ll need replacing. According to a report in Spain, Liverpool have offered Jordan Henderson in exchange for Saul.
Gini Wijnaldum’s loss will be felt keenly at Liverpool.
In a midfield stacked with talented but injury prone players the Dutchman was a reliable shining light.
During his five years at Anfield he rarely missed a Premier League game.
As a result we’ll need to sign a replacement or we risk being left short handed in the middle of the park.
Liverpool offer Henderson for Saul
A sensational report is emerging from Spain.
Recent weeks have seen numerous claims of Anfield interest in Atletico Madrid’s 19-cap international midfielder.
According to Sport, Liverpool have put Jordan Henderson on the table for Saul.
The Reds allegedly offered £34m for the Spaniard but the Madrid side want an improved bid.
As a result Liverpool have reportedly made Xherdan Shaqiri and/or Jordan Henderson available for exchange.
What RTK has to say
We’re not sure how much we believe this one.
It would be remarkable for the Reds to offer the captain as a bargaining chip.
Sure, contract talks have stalled but forcing him out in a swap deal would be insulting.
Fingers crossed we manage to tie him down to a new deal in the near future.
