Mauricio Pochettino Addresses Jordan Henderson’s Possible Chelsea Transfer Amidst ‘Desperate’ Return Rumors

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has shared insights into the potential transfer of former Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson during the ongoing January window.

The 33-year-old departed Anfield last summer to join Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard in the Middle East, securing a reported £700,000-per-week deal with Al Ettifaq. However, recent reports from the Daily Mail suggest that Henderson, now eager to cut his stint in Saudi Arabia short, is looking to return to the Premier League. This desire is fueled by struggles with weather conditions and the challenges he faced after making the initial move.

Several clubs, including Newcastle United, Fulham, and Crystal Palace, have expressed interest in midfielders early in the January transfer window, potentially paving the way for Henderson’s return in the coming weeks.

Addressing the speculations, Mauricio Pochettino stated in a recent press conference with that Chelsea has not specifically discussed names yet. Despite Henderson’s newfound availability on the transfer market, Pochettino remained non-committal on whether the player would be considered for recruitment by Chelsea.
