Liverpool are set to win the race for Sunderland midfielder Jordan Henderson.

The Daily Mail says Liverpool are closing in on a deal to sign Sunderland midfielder Henderson after lining up a £13million bid.

Henderson has been linked with Manchester United, neighbours City and Arsenal in recent months, but the 20-year-old has told close friends he would prefer a move to Anfield after Liverpool made a formal approach to Sunderland.

A deal is being held up by what one source described as a ‘ridiculous’ asking price, believed to be in the region of £20million, but Henderson could be a Liverpool player by the time he returns from England duty at the European Under-21 Championships in Denmark later this month.
