20 million pounds for Henderson, 5 million pounds for Clichy? The maths must be wrong somewhere along the lines, because I think that, as a Liverpool fan, a great deal for us should Arsenal be tempted to sell.
Perhaps it indeed is a match made in heaven with Liverpool seeking a more permanent left back at Anfield, whilst contract rebel Clichy wants out of The Emirates. The Times reports this and well, Liverpool surely aren’t showing any signs at all of stopping their spending spree for the time being. A failed attempt to bring in Phil Jones for 10+ million, a successful one to get Henderson for 20 million and now this.
The 25 year old is yet to extend his contract with the London club as there is more and more doubt over whether he will really stay with the Gunners. Worse news for the Gunners, he could even be leaving them for free in just about 12 months time should he stay with them and still be reluctant to put pen to paper in that time.
John W. Henry has been offering quite newly instilled permanent manager Kenny Dalglish quite a lot of money to work with this summer, with the Merseyside having signed Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll on big money transfer deals in the January transfer window. Alongside them, Liverpool have signed not one but two this summer. Not only is Henderson coming in, but an Irish teenager has completed a move unnoticed, with him being proclaimed as ‘The New Gareth Bale”. That is Irish 15 year old Alex O’Hanlon.
Will the spending continue or is it just a temporary thing we’re seeing? Thoughts can go straight to the comments section below.
