According to the latest reports, the England international is set to sign a three-year contract with the Premier League club and the Reds will have an option to extend his deal for another season if he manages to fulfil the required number of appearances.

Apart from his qualities as a footballer, Henderson has a massive impact on the club with his leadership skills. His presence in the Liverpool dressing room is invaluable and Liverpool will benefit from his stay on and off the pitch.

Star forward Mohamed Salah is next in line to receive an improved contract.

The Reds recently started their Premier League season with a comprehensive 3-0 win over Norwich City and they will be looking forward to challenging for the Premier League title this season.
