Liverpool jam: Who will succeed Fabinho and Jordan Henderson?

Liverpool jam: Who will succeed Fabinho and Jordan Henderson?
Doubts about the captain: Jordan Henderson is supposed to agree with the Saudi club Al-Ettifaq, but Liverpool has not yet accepted the offer. In addition, Vice-Captain Fabinho is about to leave the ship. What now, Jurgen Klopp?

It’s only been less than four weeks since the start of the Premier League season, and if Fabinho and Jordan Henderson go to Saudi Arabia, Jurgen Klopp won’t have a healthy defensive midfielder in his squad.


This is Liverpool’s situation the day before The season warm-up against Karlsruher begins on Wednesday (the match is broadcast on VG + Sport).:

This means that Liverpool do not have a single injury-free ‘midfielder’ in the squad.

– It’s not perfect. They may have spent too much time and effort on Judd Bellingham and it has overshadowed other things. Norway’s Liverpool fan club leader Tore Hansen said they should have taken action last year.

Bellingham has been closely associated with Liverpool for several years, but opted for Spanish giants Real Madrid instead.

Liverpool can sign those

In addition, Hansen believes the club has been “slept off” by Saudi Arabia’s interest in both the captain (Henderson) and vice-captain (Fabinho) in the middle.

If they both leave, the Merseyside club will have to think again.

Here are some of the options mentioned in the British media:

  • Moises Caicedo (21, Brighton)
  • Kouadio Kone (21 years old, Borussia Mönchengladbach)
  • Youri Tielemans (25, Leicester)
  • Calvin Phillips (27, Manchester City)
  • Soufiane Imrabat (26, Fiorentina)

But it will be very expensive.

– There is not much to choose from on the top shelf, so you may have to spend more than 60-80 million to replace Fabinho. Hansen says it’s a mess.

– I would like to believe that it will work out, but I’m worried. He continued: It would be a small “little crisis” if Fabinho disappeared.

Part of the solution may already be in the Liverpool squad: Trent Alexander-Arnold has occasionally wreaked havoc in England’s new midfield role, but the cheerleader doesn’t think it’s a permanent solution.

– It’s very exciting, but we have very few options at right-back, he says.

The first chance to see how Klopp solves the midfield mess is against Germany’s Karlsruher on Wednesday night. The match starts at 18:30, and you can watch the match live here:
