Atletico Madrid, defending La Liga champions, could make a bold summer move to rival Paris Saint-Germain for Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson.
The England international had a frustrating end to the 2020/21 Premier League season due to recurring injuries that limited his impact for Jurgen Klopp's team.
However, contract extension talks with the 31-year-old have reportedly stalled following Euro 2020, despite the fact that he has two years remaining on his current deal at Anfield.
According to the Daily Mail, Henderson is looking for assurances about his long-term future on Merseyside, and PSG and Atletico Madrid are both keeping a close eye on the situation.
PSG will try to entice him with the prospect of reuniting with Dutch international Gini Wijnaldum in the heart of Mauricio Pochettino's midfield.
However, if Saul Niguez completes his much-anticipated move away from the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano this month, Diego Simeone will be looking for a new midfielder.
