It seems like a lifetime ago Jordan Henderson was lifting the Premier League title in the Kop End.

A penalty from Chelsea’s Willian against Pep Guardiola’s Man City side sealed the Reds’ first ever Premier League title, cuing sheer delirium amongst Jurgen Klopp’s men and the whole of Liverpool.

Fast forward a season and it was scenes of pure relief rather than joy, as Liverpool recovered from a shattered title defence to secure third place.

Having lost six out of eight Premier League matches between February and March, their finish was somewhat of a minor miracle, considering the injuries they had to endure.

However, the Reds are looking to refresh their squad and, according to Caught Offside, the representatives of Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez are trying to arrange a move to Anfield.

Niguez is a star in La Liga.

The Spaniard enjoyed a successful 2020/21 season, helping Diego Simeone’s side win their first La Liga title since 2014.

He has been with the Red and Whites since 2013, making 337 appearances over his decade long stay.

However, it appears he is very interested in a move to the Premier League, where Manchester United are also understood to have expressed an interest in the 26-year-old.

It also appears a new move could help him get back on track with the Spain national team, as he missed out on a place in Luis Enrique’s final 26-man squad for Euro 2020.

Could that new start be on Merseyside? Only time will tell.
