Fabrizio Romano names ideal candidate to replace Jordan Henderson as Liverpool captain

Liverpool appears to be moving closer to parting ways with their important midfield pair, Jordan Henderson and Fabinho, as they are being linked to clubs in Saudi Arabia. 

Fabrizio Romano, in his exclusive column for CaughtOffside, shared his thoughts on the matter, stating that while the final decision has not been confirmed, he believes Virgil van Dijk would be his ideal choice to become the new captain of the Reds.

“There is finally an agreement between Al Ettifaq and Liverpool for Jordan Henderson. He’ll move for £12m plus add-ons, while the Fabinho deal with Al Ittihad is also being checked. No medical yet, but he has an agreement on personal terms and we’re just waiting for the clubs to sign everything off,” Romano said.

He added: “Of course the Liverpool players understand the incredible contract proposal received by Henderson at his age, so no issues there. It’s still not clear who’s going to be the next captain, but in my opinion Virgil van Dijk would be a fantastic candidate.”

Undoubtedly, Liverpool is heading into a challenging new phase, as they will have to find suitable replacements for the departing midfield duo, Henderson and Fabinho, during the upcoming transfer market.

LFC writer Neil Jones delved deeper into this matter in his recent CaughtOffside column, exploring the potential links with players such as Romeo Lavia and Sofyan Amrabat.

During the current summer transfer window, Liverpool has already secured the signings of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai. However, it is expected that they will continue to bolster their midfield options in the coming weeks with further additions.
