Jordan Henderson and Fabinho to Saudi Arabia are surfacing rapidly. The former has made the decision to accept a huge offer from Al-Ettifaq and is awaiting an inter-club agreement with Liverpool. The latter is aware of the interest from Al Ittihad and has set up negotiations with the players’ side, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Negotiations between Fabinho and Al Ittihad are taking place. Nothing done yet — no official bid has been sent to Liverpool at this stage. 🔴🇧🇷🇸🇦— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) July 13, 2023

Manager Nuno Espirito Santo, who has raised Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League and has also taken charge at Tottenham Hotspur, is keen on acquiring the Brazilian midfielder and he seems to be a top target for the club.
However, nothing has been decided yet, and no offer has been received by Liverpool. Therefore, negotiations between the clubs have not been conducted, but if a huge offer arrives, like Henderson’s, there is a strong possibility that he will change his mind and seek a place in the Saudi Professional League, where his friend Roberto Firmino moved to.
The Saudi Arabian clubs, which have been aggressively reinforcing their squads, have acquired Karim Benzema, Ruben Neves, N’Golo Kanté, Kalidou Koulibaly, Marcelo Brozovic, and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic this summer.
The possibility that more star players will join the club cannot be ruled out, and Henderson and Fabinho may be the next to move on.
Will the former Monaco midfielder take up the offer from the Middle East and land in the Saudi Professional League?
