Jordan Henderson's future at Liverpool could become a major storyline this summer.

Negotiations over a new contract have already taken place, but the two sides aren't close to reaching a deal, according to James Pearce and David Ornstein of The Athletic.

The situation is described as "complicated and sensitive," with The Athletic reporting there's been little progress during negotiations.

Given that Henderson still has two years left on his deal, Liverpool could decide to sell the 31-year-old this summer if an extension isn't agreed upon.

Liverpool could part with Henderson to avoid losing him for free in the future while addressing other ways to strengthen Jurgen Klopp's squad.

Paris Saint-Germain could be a possible suitor, with The Athletic reporting that manager Mauricio Pochettino is keeping a close eye on the situation. Atletico Madrid is another possibility, as Henderson is still close friends with former Liverpool star Luis Suarez.

If Liverpool opt to keep him, Pearce and Ornstein report Henderson wants reassurances over his role and whether the club believes in his ability to contribute on the pitch.

Henderson joined Liverpool in 2011 and has helped the club win the Champions League and Premier League.
