Liverpool transfer news roundup: Henderson accepts Saudi deal, Al-Ittihad make Fabinho offer, Van den Berg to Germany

Wow ... it's all going on in the world of Liverpool transfer news at the moment! Don't worry though, we've got you covered this Friday morning...

We'd better start with Jordan Henderson, who has accepted the stunning £700k-a-week contract offer (that's £100k a day!) from Saudi side Al-Ettifaq, according to Fabrizio Romano.

There's no 'here we go' yet though with Liverpool and Al-Ettifaq still in negotiations over a transfer fee.

Liverpool don't want to sell cheap. Melissa Reddy is among those claiming the Reds are holding out for £20m for their captain.

But DaveOCKop writes that the Saudi club could yet walk away from the deal and don't want to be held to ransom, which seems odd considering the wages...

90min say Gerrard's Liverpool reunion won't end with Henderson either, as Al-Ettifaq are also planning a move for Sadio Mane.

Meanwhile, fellow Saudi Pro League club Al-Ittihad are ready to make an official £40m bid for Fabinho, say The Athletic.

And if that wasn't enough senior midfielders at risk of leaving for you, Barcelona have entered the mix for Thiago, say SPORT.

Sacha Tavolieri says a Barça return for Thiago is a "concrete possibility".

The same journalist says that Liverpool are waiting for Henderson's move to be finalised before making a bid for Southampton's Romeo Lavia.

It's not just all the midfielders linked with moves away at the moment, Wolves are targeting Caoimhin Kelleher according to the MailOnline.

Despite all the noise of the last 24 hours, only one player has officially departed and that's Sepp van den Berg, who has joined Mainz on loan.

In other news, the Evening Standard say Tottenham are eyeing up Levi Colwill. Hands off please!

And finally, the agent of Zulte Waregem’s Pape Diop has told TuttoMercatoWeb that Liverpool are one of the clubs to have made an approach about a transfer.
