According to Fabrizio Romano, Jordan Henderson has accepted the proposal from Saudi Arabian side Al Ettifaq.
A verbal agreement is now in place between the player and the club and a contract has been agreed upon.
However, he finalization of the deal now depends on the fee, with both clubs currently undergoing discussions, with there being ‘no chance’ that The Reds let their captain depart for free.
Meanwhile, Jürgen Klopp has spoken with the England international and given him the green light to make the move, where he will play under Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, who recently became manager of the Saudi side.
Furthermore, as per David Ornstein, the proposal for the midfielder will quadruple his current salary at The Reds, with other reports indicating the offer is worth around £700,000 per week.
The 33-year-old joined Liverpool from Sunderland in 2011, and has been a stalwart in their side ever since, solidifying himself in the Club’s history by captaining them to their first ever Premier League title, as well as winning the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League and both the FA Cup and EFL Cup in the 2021/22 season.
Henderson is not the only midfielder being linked with a move from Merseyside to the Gulf State, with previous reports stating that N’Golo Kante and Karim Benzema’s new club Al Ittihad are set make a £40m bid for Brazillian international Fabinho.
If both moves were to go through, they would mark another part of what has been already been a significant midfield rebuild for Klopp’s side this summer. James Milner, Naby Keïta, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have departed on free transfers, whilst exciting talents Dominik Szoboszlai and Alexis Mac Allister have joined for just over €100m combined, and Southampton’s Roméo Lavia is also being linked with a move to Anfield as a possible replacement for the potentially outgoing Fabinho.
