Liverpool are reportedly set to offer Jordan Henderson a new contract. The midfielder has just two years left on his current contract with the Reds. Henderson is currently the captain of Liverpool and has been a legend in the midfield for the club over the years.
According to Mirror, Liverpool are looking to offer Jordan Henderson a deal that would see him potentially ending his career at Anfield. The 31-year-old is currently on leave after losing the Euro 2020 final to England last week.
Liverpool are looking to offer new contracts this summer to several star players such as Virgil van Dijk, Alisson and Jordan Henderson. Jurgen Klopp’s side ended a disappointing 2020-21 campaign in which they finished third in the Premier League table.
The Merseyside club will be looking to make a comeback this summer by signing a few statements but will try to tie up members of their core squad first.
Jordan Henderson joined Liverpool from Sunderland for £16 million in the summer of 2011. The midfielder was seen at the time as a long-term replacement for Steven Gerrard.
After struggling to maintain consistency during his first few seasons, Jordan Henderson has become a quiet and constant presence in midfield for Liverpool over the years. The England international played a key role in Liverpool’s Champions League victory during the 2018–19 season.
He also helped the club win their maiden Premier League title during the 2019–20 campaign. Henderson’s impact at Liverpool last season was limited due to injury. The club’s captain was frequently deployed as centre-back, due to the absence of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez due to prolonged knee injuries. He was eventually ruled out for an extended period after suffering from a groin problem that required surgery.
