For almost a year, Liverpool tried to convince Georginio Wijnaldum to extend his contract. They failed. This summer, they are trying to attract Jordan Henderson. Bust just like before, they are not doing well. According to the claims of the British media, and Athletic is in the lead with two influential journalists, the negotiations between the Reds and the experienced midfielder are not on the right track, and judging by today's day, there is little chance that they will end successfully.
No source states what exactly is a stumbling block, where it got stuck, but they agree that the situation is not ideal and that in many ways it resembles the "Wijnaldum case" The Dutchman left England as a free agent and signed for Paris Saint-Germain, while with Henderson the situation is not so alarming, because his contract is valid until June 2023, which means that he has enough time for a turnaround.

As it is stated, Henderson does not want a replay of Wijnaldum's scenario either, although it is understandable that after winning the Champions League and the Europa League, he values himself more than when he came from Sunderland for 18,000,000 euros ten years ago.
It should be noted that Henderson last extended his contract for five years in 2018, but as English clubs often like to offer players who have entered the fourth decade to continue cooperation for only one year, two at most, one of the assumptions is that there is no agreement because of contract duration issue.
Which, in the future, could be used by Paris Saint-Germain or Atletico Madrid. THEY have been increasingly present in recent days in an attempt to use the status quo and persuade Jordan to leave British soil. In addition to Jordan Henderson, Liverpool sporting director Michael Edwards is negotiating new contracts with goalkeeper Alison, defender Virgil van Dijk, and striker Mohamed Salah.
This is not good news at all for Liverpool who had a very bad season last season. It is necessary for Klopp's team to be stronger, but it seems that Liverpool will be even weaker. Apart from Konate, Liverpool still do not plan to bring in players. But there should be no doubt about Klopp and his abilities which he has shown many times
