The Express understands that Chelsea are ready to move for Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson, with the midfielder yet to agree terms on a new deal at Anfield.
The former Sunderland man who, with Steven Gerrard suspended captained the Merseyside club and scored from the penalty spot in their 4-1 defeat at Arsenal on Saturday afternoon will have just twelve months remaining on his current deal come the summer.
Since signing for the Reds in the summer of 2011, Henderson has racked up one hundred and seventy-seven appearances in all competitions, with his goal at the weekend his twentieth for the club.
However, the England international’s future may lie away from Anfield with current Premier League leaders Chelsea monitoring his situation closely.
Liverpool’s defeat on Saturday left them seven points behind the top four, and Manchester City could widen that gap even further if they win at Crystal Palace on Monday evening.
