Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is set to leave the club after reportedly agreeing personal terms with Saudi Pro League club Al Ettifaq. The midfielder, who has spent 12 years at Anfield and won the Champions League, the Premier League, and the FIFA Club World Cup, is looking for a new challenge and a lucrative deal, according to reports.

Henderson has two years left on his current contract with Liverpool but has not been offered an extension by the club. The 33-year-old is also facing increased competition for a place in Jurgen Klopp's midfield, with the arrivals of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai this summer. Henderson made 43 appearances for Liverpool last season, but his form dipped as the team finished third in the league.

Al Ettifaq, who finished seventh in the Saudi Pro League last season, have made a stunning offer to Henderson, who could earn around £700,000 per week if he joins them. The club have also appointed Henderson's former Liverpool teammate and captain Steven Gerrard as their new manager, which could be another factor in his decision.

Henderson held talks with Klopp this week over his role at Liverpool next season, and may also consider the impact of a move to Saudi Arabia on his England career. Henderson was an influential player for Gareth Southgate at the 2022 World Cup and may want to continue playing for his country at next year's European Championships in Germany.

Al Ettifaq have not yet made a formal bid for Henderson, but are expected to do so soon if the player gave them the green light. Liverpool have reportedly set an asking price of £10 million for their captain, according to Fabrizio Romano. Al Ettifaq are one of several Saudi clubs who have been backed by the Public Investment Fund (PIF) and have been splashing the cash on big-name players this summer.

Henderson is not the only Liverpool player who has attracted interest from the Saudi Pro League. Thiago Alcantara is also on the radar of several clubs, including Al Hilal and Al Nassr. Liverpool may be willing to sell some of their stars to raise funds for further reinforcements, as they look to challenge for the title next season.
