Saudi Arabian clubs have been hugely influential during the summer transfer window so far, with several high-profile players having moved to the Pro League.
With Cristiano Ronaldo having joined Al-Nassr last year, the Portuguese has since been followed to the Middle East by the likes of Karim Benzema, N’Golo Kante, Kalidou Koulibaly, and Ruben Neves.
Several other stars, including Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva, have also been linked with moves to the Pro League.
Now, though, it appears that two Liverpool stars are close to completing moves to Saudi Arabia.
As per Football Insider, midfielders Jordan Henderson and Fabinho are both closing in on moves to the Pro League.
The report claims that the Reds are expecting to sell Fabinho this week, before then finalising the sale of Henderson.
Fabinho, 29, is said to have been allowed to complete a £40 million move to Al-Ittihad.
The Brazil international joined Liverpool from Monaco five years ago and has played a crucial role for Jurgen Klopp’s side ever since, but it appears that he will now depart Anfield to join the Pro League.
Henderson, meanwhile, has reportedly agreed a two-year-contract with fellow Saudi side Al-Ettifaq, which will earn him a staggering £700,000-per-week.
The England international has spent more than a decade with Liverpool and made a total of 492 appearances for the club.
Both Fabinho and Henderson played key roles for Klopp’s side as they lifted both the Champions League in 2019 and the Premier League the following year.
Manager Klopp is overseeing a huge overhaul of his midfield options this summer, with James Milner, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain having all departed the club earlier this summer.
Since then, the Reds have signed Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton and Hove Albion, and Dominik Szoboszlai from German club RB Leipzig.
With both Fabinho and Henderson expected to depart the club in the coming weeks, it remains to be seen whether or not Liverpool will look to replace the duo before the transfer window shuts.
