Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has vowed to find a resolution to Jordan Henderson’s current contract, amid speculation that the Englishman is interesting a number of sides across Europe.
The Reds skipper remains a vital asset to the club having been an integral part of their Champions League and Premier League success in recent years, yet he faces an uncertain future at the club with just two years remaining on his current deal.
Liverpool have recently announced contract renewals for the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil Van Dijk and Brazilian stopper Alisson, yet an extension for Henderson seems less certain, sparking rumoured interest from the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and ‘Big Six’ rivals Arsenal.
The 31-year-old has overcome a shaky start to his Anfield career to become an iconic figure at the club, the midfielder currently set to enter into his 11th top-flight season on Merseyside, having originally joined from Sunderland a decade ago.
That ten-year stint has seen him rack up an impressive 392 appearances for the club across all competitions, while he also became the first club captain to lift the league title in over 30 years, following their Premier League triumph in the 2019/20 campaign.
Losing such a figure would no doubt be a huge blow to Jurgen Klopp’s side and its supporters, the club having recently seen key man Gini Wijnaldum depart for PSG following the expiry of his contract earlier this summer.
With the club looking to avoid a repeat of that situation, Klopp has insisted that a resolution will be found regarding Henderson’s contract.
“[It is] Important. But we will [find a resolution],” he said at his pre-match press conference.
“We will sort it, however it will be. But we will sort it, no doubt about that.”
Liverpool are set to kick off their 2021/22 campaign with an opening weekend clash with Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday evening, with Klopp insisting that the Englishman is in good shape ahead of the match.
“I spoke yesterday to him and it looked like that, yes!”
