After only six months in Saudi Arabia, Jordan Henderson, the former leader of Liverpool, is reportedly considering going back to the Premier League, which could be the solution to Chelsea’s midfield woes. After pledging to assist the LGBTQ community in sports, the 33-year-old’s move to Al-Ettifaq after 12 years in Merseyside drew national attention.

Numerous teams, including Celtic, an undisclosed German team, and the Blues and Newcastle United, are keeping an eye on what’s happening in the Middle East.

Thiago Silva is the only outfield player in Chelsea’s roster who is older than thirty; the squad’s thirty-one players are only 23.7 years old on average.

With 431 Premier League games and eight major titles won while at Anfield, Henderson’s background may come in handy when this youthful team is being assembled, and it might even enable Conor Gallagher to depart the team in light of recent rumours.

In his most recent news conference, Pochettino remained reticent about the situation, despite rumours that London rivals Tottenham Hotspur are planning an acquisition for the Chelsea skipper in the January transfer window.
