Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will be working hard to prepare his side for the upcoming season, which starts in less than three weeks. 

The Reds will get their Premier League campaign underway with a trip to London to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on August 13, before hosting Bournemouth in their first home match.

Klopp’s side for the game against the Blues will likely look very different from the one that finished last term, with several players having departed Anfield this summer.

Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Roberto Firmino and James Milner all left when their respective contracts expired at the end of June, and it appears that another first team star is set to depart.

According to Football Insider, midfielder Jordan Henderson has completed a medical ahead of a move to Saudi Arabian side Al Ettifaq.

The report claims that the England international is set to join the Pro League side in a deal that will be worth a staggering £120 million in total.

Henderson, 33, will reportedly earn a huge £700,000-per-week when he joins Al-Ettifaq, totalling more than £36 million-per-year.

The midfielder joined Liverpool from Sunderland back in 2011 and has since made a total of 492 appearances across all competitions.

He has won every major trophy available to him during his time on Merseyside, and has captained the club for the past few seasons.

Henderson will be reunited with former Reds teammate Steven Gerrard in the Middle East, with the former Aston Villa manager having taken charge of the Pro League side earlier this month.

Liverpool are said to have accepted an offer of £12 million for Henderson, who will become the most recent player to move to Saudi Arabia.

So far this summer several players, including Karim Benzema, N’Golo Kante and Edouard Mendy, have all completed moves to the Pro League, and Henderson looks likely to become the next player to do so.
