Tottenham should snap up Jordan Henderson if Liverpool sign Grzegorz Krychowiak

According to reports in The Sun, Liverpool are keen to sign Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak this summer, and their Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur should be watching developments closely.

What’s the word, then?

Well, The Sun report that Red boss Jurgen Klopp is keen to add some depth to his squad this summer as they look to compete for the Premier League title and enjoy more Champions League success this term.

The Sun says that the German manager sees the Poland international as a similar player to Emre Can, who left for Juventus when his contract expired last month, although his future at the Parc des Princes is yet to be decided given Thomas Tuchel only replaced Unai Emery this summer.

Krychowiak spent the 2017/18 campaign on loan at West Bromwich Albion, and while it was a disappointing spell in general given the Baggies were relegated and he sometimes struggled to make the starting XI, he did put in one of his best performances in his side’s 3-2 FA Cup win at Anfield back in January.

Why should Tottenham be monitoring the situation?

Well, The Mirror reported back in April that Mauricio Pochettino is willing to offload Mousa Dembele, Victor Wanyama and Moussa Sissoko for the right price this summer, and if he does he will be looking for central midfield reinforcements.

The arrival of Krychowiak at Anfield would surely push Henderson further down the pecking order given Fabinho and Naby Keita have already signed for Liverpool this summer, and he could well be on the move as a result if he wants to play regularly.

Given his impressive performances for England in Russia, as well as the fact that he is a leader and knows lots of Spurs players well having played with them for his country, he could be the ideal addition for Tottenham, whose fans want one of their 2018 World Cup stars sold following a “terrible” display, alongside the likes of Eric Dier in middle of the park for the 2018/19 campaign.
