Saudi Arabian club want to sign Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson after latest development. Al-Ettifaq have listed Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson as a potential target after the Saudi Arabian club confirmed the arrival of Steven Gerrard as their new manager on Monday.
The Reds legend initially rejected a move to the Saudi Pro League outfit but it was confirmed by the club on Monday that the former Aston Villa boss will take over the team ahead of the new season having signed a two-year deal.
Jordan Henderson of Liverpool is one of Gerrard’s initial goals as Ettifaq, like numerous other clubs in the Saudi Arabian league, looks to entice some prominent players from the continent.
The Daily Mail claims that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Chelsea is also a target in addition to the Reds captain, however it is unclear at this time whether either Premier League player would receive a formal offer.
It is unclear if Henderson will be enticed by the lucrative Saudi league given that he has been at Anfield for 12 years and is still bound by his current deal, which runs until 2025.
Liverpool have signed two midfielders already this summer and are targeting a third, which means that the 33-year-old’s game time will be significantly reduced next season. This could have a big impact on the England international’s future should an offer arrive from Ettifaq as Gerrard looks to bring his former teammate with him on this new journey.
