Jordan Henderson's future at Liverpool hangs in the balance with Jurgen Klopp willing to let the midfielder leave this summer. The Reds captain has failed to justify a starting spot for himself in the squad and Klopp is ready to make way for Henderson to bring in more precocious talent next summer in a bid to resurrect the Reds' title challenge.
The Daily Mail believes Henderson could be sold for as much as £20m ($28m), which could make room for the purchase of Mario Goetze, Leandro Paredes and Javier Hernandez, who are top of Klopp's list in the upcoming transfer window. The German has led the Reds to a Europa League quarter-final and were on the cusp of ending their trophy drought in the Capital One Cup where they lost in the finals to Manchester City.
He believes that his team has more to offer and subbing Henderson against Manchester United at Old Trafford proved that he does not have full faith in the midfielder to marshal the Reds midfield. Klopp refused to rule out selling any player in the team as he believes everyone barring the likes of Lionel Messi is replaceable if given the time and money. Tottenham are believed to be interested and Klopp revealed that he would have no reservations to sell to his direct rivals if everything about the deal is worth considering.
"Nobody in the world, maybe only Messi, is unsellable," Klopp said. "I am pretty sure it is only a rumour [Tottenham] but if not and if any player comes to me and says he doesn't feel comfortable and wants to leave, style of play, more money, then you always have to start thinking."
The Reds face Southampton in the Premier league this weekend where a win will take them level on points with Manchester United, who travel to the Etihad to take on a floundering Manchester City. Anything less than a win will all but end their hopes of getting into the top four, with qualification to the Champions League hinging on their ability to win the Europa.
