Juventus Considering Loan Move for Al Ettifaq Midfielder Amid Transfer Window Speculation

2 min read

Jordan Henderson, the former Liverpool captain, joined Al Ettifaq last summer but now wants to leave the Saudi Arabian club. It is reported that he cost around £13m to sign and is earning a weekly wage of approximately £350,000. The January transfer window in England and Italy closes on Thursday 1 February.

According to Sky in Italy, Juventus is considering a loan move for Henderson. However, there may be a stumbling block in the form of the length of the loan deal. Henderson is hoping for an 18-month agreement, while Juventus would only consider a deal until the end of the season. Al Ettifaq has been struggling on the pitch, with no wins in the Saudi Pro League since late October and currently sitting in eighth place. The team is playing in front of small crowds, and Henderson seems to be motivated by the financial aspect of playing in Saudi Arabia.

In an interview with The Athletic in September, Henderson stated that money has never been a motivation for him in his career. He expressed an interest in growing the sport and the league in another country, which excited him. However, Henderson also mentioned the challenges of moving to a different country, such as the language barrier and finding schools for his children. He emphasized the importance of considering all these factors before making a decision.

The closing dates for the transfer window were determined in consultation with various leagues, including the EFL, DFL, Serie A, LaLiga, and LFP. They decided to align their closing dates to ensure harmonization with the major leagues in Europe.
