Henderson has made 283 appearances in all competitions for Liverpool, scoring 24 goals in the process.

PSG are still hoping to convince Rabiot to stay but Liverpool's interest has increased the chances of his departure.

Highly rated by clubs across Europe, ESPN have similarly reported that Klopp and Rabiot 'have already spoken on the phone to discuss a move'.

Instead Thomas Tuchel's side wanted Rabiot to sign a new deal, with his contract set to expire in May 2019, but so far the player has refused to sign a new deal despite the threat of him being dropped.

In the summer Jurgen Klopp tried to change this and signed Naby Keita and Fabinho for the midfield.

Liverpool fans, meanwhile, are now excited by the prospect of Rabiot's potential arrival after seeing his past social media activity.

Rabiot left an indication that he thinks highly of the Reds when asked about his future in an interview with French station RMC previous year.

This would provide a interesting backdrop to the Reds' clashes with PSG in this season's Champions League, with their first meeting coming at Anfield on September 18.

Craig Bellamy believes that Joe Gomez is a better central defensive partner to Virgil van Dijk than Dejan Lovren at Liverpool FC.

Last October, in an interview with French radio station RMC, Rabiot said that he grew up loving Liverpool.

Jürgen Klopp described Jordan Henderson as Liverpool's "general" after the midfielder signed a new five-year contract until 2023.
