The Sunday Mirror reports that the supposed successor to Steven Gerrard does want to remain at Anfield but that there is currently no sign that either side will budge on their current contract demands.
The news is compounded by the fact Henderson has little over 12 months left on his current Liverpool deal which has led Arsenal and Manchester City to both keep a close eye on the situation.
The club are said to have offered Henderson an £80,000-per-week package which was rejected by the former-Sunderland man in November as he saw it below his value since he was deemed the next leader of Rodgers’ Liverpool squad.
However, the Reds run a strict wage structure at the club and are only willing to increase the rise of Henderson’s current deal by £15,000-a-week.
Although, the report in the Mirror also says that this deal isn’t about squeezing the most money out of the club as possible or forcing a move to another club.
Whilst the player is keen to commit to the club he sees this as the most important contract so far in his career.
