Jordan Henderson looks set to end the uncertainty around his future after reaching an agreement over a new deal at Liverpool.
The report suggested that Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain were interested in the 31-year-old midfielder, who still has two years remaining on his current deal at Anfield.
The Reds have recently tied Virgil van Dijk, Fabinho, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Alisson to new contracts in recent weeks, and according to The Athletic, ‘significant’ progress has now been made in talks with Henderson over a ‘long-term’ deal.
Liverpool have proposed a deal ‘spanning three years with the option of a fourth contingent on how many appearances he makes’.
Henderson is yet to sign anything, but they do say that there is an ‘agreement in principle’ in what will be a major boost to Jurgen Klopp who is a huge fan of the former Sunderland man, who was keen to have an agreement about his role in the side going forward.
They say that Klopp has played a ‘pivotal role’ in moving the talks along, the German determined not to end up in another situation that saw an influential midfielder leave for nothing as Gini Wijnaldum has done this summer.
Henderson didn’t feature in Liverpool’s 3-0 opening weekend win over Norwich, but is believed to have impressed during a behind-closed-doors friendly against Aston Villa on Sunday as he looks to regain match fitness following his delayed return to pre-season.
