Henderson could show bigger transfer problem for Liverpool amid Saudi question

You can’t help but feel an earthquake in world football right now. Saudi Arabia has entered the market and could become a real threat to some of the major powers in Europe.

Some might consider that statement an overreaction. After all, the majority of recent Pro League signings have been players in the twilight of their careers, looking for one last huge paycheck before retiring.

For now, the early forays of the Middle East might just paint it as a glorious retirement home for players, in the same way that MLS was perceived not so long ago. But it has shown signs of going further than that and that could cause some concern for Liverpool.

Jordan Henderson is the latest player to be linked with a move to Saudi Arabia. Although the Daily Mail suggested on Tuesday that the Liverpool captain would not reunite with Steven Gerrard at Al-Ettifaq, ECHO has reported that interest is growing from the Pro League, with the midfielder currently having to face decisions about his future.

There will be some who see interest in Henderson as a potential opportunity for Liverpool. After all, he is now 33 years old and is likely to find his opportunities more limited following the arrivals of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai.

At the same time, Henderson still has an important role to play at Anfield. After all, he is the captain of the club, and even with two new midfielders in the ranks, he will almost certainly still be a regular if he chooses to stay.
