Ex-Tottenham player, Jamie O’Hara has told talkSPORT that he would ‘love’ the North London club to sign Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson.

The Athletic reported this week that while talks over an extension of Henderson’s current contract have taken place during the summer, no real progress has been made.

Negotiations haven’t broken down but it’s reportedly a complicated and sensitive situation, as Henderson is 31-years-old and his contract expires in 2023.

Juventus have reportedly joined PSG and Atletico Madrid in the race to sign the unsettled Henderson this summer.

Similarities have been drawn to the Georginio Wijnaldum situation after the 30-year-old joined Paris Saint-Germain this summer on a free transfer after his contract expired at Anfield.

Henderson has been Liverpool captain for the past six years and has overseen their recent Premier League-winning campaign, while also lifting the Champions League in 2019 when the Reds defeated Spurs in Madrid.

O’Hara has claimed that he would ‘love’ to see Henderson in a Spurs shirt but did admit that he cannot see the move actually happening.

He said: “I would love him at Spurs. He is everything we need.

“He’s a leader. A character on the pitch. He’s a driving force in midfield. I would absolutely love him to be at Spurs.

“But we cannot get someone like him. I don’t think we are on that level. If he’s leaving Liverpool, he’s going to a PSG. I cannot see him ever going to Spurs.”

SpursWeb Opinion 

Henderson is a midfielder often credited for his work off the pitch but actually has great ability on it. His CV is incredible and Henderson coming to Spurs, unfortunately, is a move that just isn’t feasible in every sense of the word.
