Liverpool are ready to offer a new deal to captain Jordan Henderson.
The midfielder still has two years left on his current deal at Anfield, but now they are looking to offer him an improved contract which would effectively see him end his career on Merseyside.
The Merseyside club do not want a repeat of what happened with Georginio Wijnaldum who ran down his contract and left on a free transfer.
Henderson was signed in 2011 from Sunderland for £16 million when Kenny Dalglish was manager of the club, and has since gone on to make more than 300 appearances for them in all competitions, scoring 30 times.
He captained them to Champions League success in 2019, and to the Premier League title a year later.
Manager Jurgen Klopp has previously described Henderson as his general and said that he trusts him completely.
The 31-year old has 64 caps for England, and recently ended his long wait for his first international goal by scoring with a header in the defeat of Ukraine in the Euros quarter-finals.

He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
