Liverpool media round-up: Henderson agrees new deal, Depay among several targets

A selection of the latest stories in the media involving Liverpool Football Club this Tuesday morning.

Jordan Henderson has agreed a new contract with the club worth around £100,000 per week, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

The Mail claims that a resolution has been found after what appeared to be something of a stand-off between the club and the player, and he is expected to put pen to paper on a five-year deal. The same article also reiterates that talks with Raheem Sterling will resume at the end of the season.

The Guardian is among several newspapers to say that Liverpool will compete with Manchester United for the signature of Memphis Depay, who is expected to leave PSV Eindhoven this summer for sizeable fee - expected to be in excess of the £14.4 million tabled by Tottenham Hotspur last summer.

It is stated that there will be an overhaul of Liverpool's striking options with the possibility of Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini all departing Anfield this summer. Divock Origi is due to arrive after a season-long loan at Ligue 1 side Lille ahead of next season.

The Mirror also carries a similar report regarding Depay, but mentions a series of other players that could arrive at the club, as manager Brendan Rodgers reportedly wants a change in recruitment policy that has seen a series of younger players arrive at the club ever since his arrival on Merseyside.

The Reds will target two full-backs and at least another forward, according to the report, with James Milner and Danny Ings still on the radar for free transfer moves in the summer. One big target will be a new central midfielder with Steven Gerrard leaving the club, which has led to rumours of William Carvalho being targeted from Sporting Lisbon.
