After Liverpool passed a tough test in the third round of the FA Cup against Arsenal, this institution led by Jürgen Klopp is ready to find the best strategy to overcome the semifinals of the EFL Cup against Fulham, leaving the German coach aside the issue of transfers for a few days, with several rumors indicating that there is little interest in a possible return of former captain in midfield, Jordan Henderson.

Although the Reds' main priority at the moment is to reach their first final appearance of the season, it is true that the manager and his staff have not stopped in their search for new players, Jordan Henderson being an addition that with the departure of Thiago Alcantara could seem justifiable, but it seems that Liverpool have no desire to repatriate their former player who only months ago left for Saudi Arabian soccer.

The main reason why Hendo would not return to the Reds is because of the good level that all the players who are currently in charge of the midfield are having, there being no urgency to acquire another midfield player when the club's need would be to get a defender or an attacker, making Kylian Mbappe the main target for the Merseyside team.

Even the same account of The Anfield Talk has said on the social network X that Liverpool has left Henderson behind, not having an expected return as some might have imagined at the time, indicating this fact that the former captain of the Reds must find some other accommodation within the Premier League if his desire is still to continue his career in this competition that saw him develop for many years.

Klopp doesn't need more midfielders or leaders in his squad

The match against Arsenal was the best proof that Klopp currently does not need many improvements in his squad, and even with big losses in the midfield, this group was able to beat the Gunners at home, having on the field leaders of all kinds who did not need a captain's badge or a vast experience to be able to solve a situation that was becoming complicated, looking for these Reds to reaffirm this fact against Fulham this Wednesday afternoon.
