Nuno Espirito Santo sent Jordan Henderson transfer message amid Liverpool contract uncertainty

0 Hendo

Surprising reports emerged last week that Jordan Henderson’s future at Liverpool is uncertain.

The Reds captain, who has been at Anfield since making a £20million move from Sunderland in 2011, has lifted both the Champions League and Premier League trophy with Jurgen Klopp ‘s side in recent years, but his future is in doubt.

According to a report from The Athletic earlier this month, the Liverpool captain’s contract – that runs out in two years’ time – is not the owners’ priority as things stand and this has caused some uncertainty over his future on Merseyside.

It is said that talks over an extension have been had during the off-season, but “no real progress has been made”.

The news is still pretty raw and there could be developments being made behind the scenes at the time of writing, but Tottenham have been urged to act on the situation and bring Henderson to north London.

Former Spurs midfielder Jamie O’Hara, when speaking to talkSPORT, via the Liverpool Echo, explained why Nuno Espirito Santo should chance his arm and make an ambitious move.

“I would love him at Spurs, he is everything we need,” O’Hara said. “He’s a leader. A character on the pitch. He’s a driving force in midfield. I would absolutely love him to be at Spurs.

“But we cannot get someone like him. I don’t think we are on that level.

“If he’s leaving Liverpool, he’s going to a PSG. I cannot see him ever going to Spurs.”

The aforementioned report did mention that former Tottenham boss, and now Paris Saint-Germain manager, Mauricio Pochettino is an admirer of Henderson and could look to bring him to the French capital if his contract situation at Liverpool cannot be resolved.

Pochettino recently signed Henderson’s former Reds team-mate Gini Wijnaldum for PSG, with the Dutchman admitting that the former Spurs manager tried to sign him during his time in north London.

“I met Pochettino when I left Newcastle. I just felt Liverpool wanted to come to an agreement quickly,” Wijnaldum told the Daily Telegraph.

“Tottenham have shown over the years the quality of their players and manager.

“I see Tottenham as a team like us, wanting to play good football. They are always looking for solutions in the game and play as we do.

“That’s why people say this is a ‘big game’. In the situation we are in, they say it makes it bigger.”
