Liverpool could are ready to sacrifice Jordan Henderson to land a replacement for Pepe Reina.

According to the Daily Mirror, Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers wants Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet and could send Henderson back to his old club as a makeweight in any deal.

Rodgers is rebuilding at the Reds and the report claims Mignolet’s form for the Black Cats this season has led the former Swansea boss to believe he could succeed Reina as Anfield number one.

However, the England international has improved of late and the report claims Rodgers would only let him go reluctantly.
