The 24 year old has matured into a key member of Brendan Rodgers’ squad and this source claims that the Merseyside outfit are ready to concede to Henderson’s demands, which in the current salary climate in the game are by no means extravagant.
Henderson is currently on a £60k a week deal and has turned down an initial offer of £80k a week and with just over a year to run on his current contract, now is the time to resolve the matter.
The England international is apparently a player on Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho’s wish-list according to ESPN and if this is indeed the case then Rodgers wouldd do well to nip his contract talks in the bud sooner rather than later.
With Steven Gerrard heading to the LA Galaxy in the summer the last thing the Northern Irish boss is the prospect of losing two key midfielders in one transfer window.
Henderson is into his fourth season at Liverpool and has already amassed 177 appearances for the club.
