Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson reportedly attracted the interest of Paris Saint-Germain over the summer.
That’s according to Italian transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, who claims the Ligue 1 juggernauts were actively looking for another midfielder to bolster their squad.
Romano also claims the unplanned ‘opportunity’ to sign Leo Messi played a role, but then of course the Reds captain put pen to paper on a new long-term deal at Anfield.
Honestly, we at Empire of the Kop aren’t convinced PSG’s rumoured interest in Henderson goes all that far.
While there should be no surprise if the Ligue 1 giants were genuinely interested in the Liverpool No.14, given his ability and leadership qualities, they surely would have recognised the mountainous task of trying to sign the club captain.
