Liverpool to secure Henderson extension, prepare for Davies bids, Origi update

Liverpool have prioritised locking down some of their best players to new contracts during the summer.

With Virgil van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold signing on the dotted line in recent weeks, captain Jordan Henderson was up next.

Concerns emerged amid talk of ‘stalling’ between the two parties – but the latest news from Anfield suggests they have broken through.

But one man who could see his contract ended early is Ben Davies, who only joined in January from Preston during the injury crisis.

While the centre-back has not made a single competitive appearance for Liverpool, his availability could spark a lot of interest.

These two deals, along with an update on Divock Origi, form the focus of Daily Star Sport’s Liverpool transfer round-up…

Henderson secured

Liverpool’s captain has two years left on his current deal at Anfield, which saw negotiations start at the beginning of the month.

But concerns were raised when it emerged that the 31-year-old’s representatives had stalled in talks over his new deal.

The Athetlic, though, have reported that a three-year deal – including an optional fourth – has been agreed and is set to be signed.

Davies to start digging war

With Ibrahima Konate arriving earlier in the summer for £36m plus the returns of Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip, the January signing appears to be surplus to requirements.

And the Liverpool Echo have reported that this will see the Reds send the centre-back out on loan, with several clubs interested.

Celtic, Bournemouth and Burnley all all believed to have been thinking about a deal but Sheffield United boss Slavia Jokanovic’s ‘persistence’ has put the Blades ahead.

Third club wants Origi

Another player who could be on the way out is their Belgian forward, who only scored one goal and made 17 appearances last season.

It emerged on Monday that West Ham and Wolves were interested in the 26-year-old.

But The Telegraph have now reported that Crystal Palace have thrown their name into the hat, following their one shot on target in the 3-0 defeat to Chelsea.
