Two Liverpool players are expected to move to Saudi Arabia in the summer, and Jordan Henderson is trying to get out of Al Ettifaq in order to perhaps sign with a major European team. This is your summary of the most recent Liverpool news.
Giant from Europe is “keen” to sign Jordan Henderson.
Jordan Henderson, the former captain of Liverpool, is expected to sign a contract with Ajax this month. The renowned team is eager to acquire the Al Ettifaq midfielder. The Guardian claims that Henderson is looking for a route out of Saudi Arabia.
Henderson wants to move on after being sold for about $15 million (£12 million/€14 million) in the summer, but it’s unclear if Al Ettifaq will approve a transfer.
