Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has a contract with the club until the summer of 2023, and the Premier League side are finding it difficult to agree on an extension with him.

According to reports, talks have taken place regarding an extension, but there has been no progress so far.

It is a complicated and sensitive situation, and the club owners have bigger priorities to address right now.

Virgil van DijkMohamed SalahAlisson Becker and Fabinho will be offered extensions in the coming months.

Recently midfielder Gini Wijnaldum left Liverpool on a free transfer after the two parties failed to agree on a contract extension. It seems that Henderson might be in a similar situation. Liverpool did not want to offer Wijnaldum a fat contract in his 30s. 

The Liverpool captain will be 33 by the time his current contract ends, and it is understandable why the Reds might not want to offer him a lucrative deal at this stage of his career.

Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint Germain are keen on signing the Liverpool midfielder, and they are currently keeping tabs on his situation.

Liverpool will not want to lose their captain on a free transfer in 2023, and it wouldn’t be surprising if they decided to cash in on the midfielder if an extension is not signed soon.

Henderson is a quality player who is unlikely to have any shortage of suitors, but his departure could come as a significant blow for the Reds.

Apart from his quality as a footballer, Henderson is a leader on and off the pitch. His presence in the dressing room has been invaluable to Liverpool’s resurgence under Jurgen Klopp.
