Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is reportedly considering a lucrative offer from Al-Ettifaq, a Saudi Arabian club managed by former Liverpool teammate Steven Gerrard.

Henderson, who has been with Liverpool since 2011 and has made over 400 appearances for the club, has two years left on his current contract. Talks of a potential extension have so far failed to yield a positive outcome, leading to speculation about his future at the club.

Al-Ettifaq’s interest in Henderson comes as the club looks to strengthen its squad ahead of the new season. The Saudi Arabian side, which finished 12th in the Saudi Professional League last season, has reportedly made a substantial offer to Henderson in an attempt to lure him away from Anfield.

While Liverpool is believed to be keen on retaining Henderson’s services, negotiations over a new contract have hit a stumbling block. Henderson is said to be seeking a longer-term deal than what Liverpool is currently offering, which has led to uncertainty over his future at the club.

The prospect of reuniting with Gerrard, who played alongside Henderson at Liverpool for several years, could prove tempting for the midfielder. Gerrard is highly regarded by Henderson and played a key role in his development as a player during their time together at Anfield.

However, a move to Al-Ettifaq would see Henderson leave one of the biggest clubs in world football for a relatively unknown outfit in Saudi Arabia. It remains to be seen whether Henderson will opt to stay at Liverpool or take up the opportunity to work with Gerrard once again.

For Liverpool, losing Henderson would be a significant blow. The midfielder has been a key player for the club and played a pivotal role in their recent success, including their Premier League and Champions League triumphs in 2019 and 2020, respectively.

Regardless of where Henderson ends up, his legacy at Liverpool is secure, and he will always be remembered as a key figure in the club’s recent history. For now, Liverpool fans will be hoping that their captain decides to stay at the club and continue his impressive career on Merseyside.
