ARSENAL are frontrunners to sign Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson.
That's according to bookmakers Coral, who've installed Mikel Arteta's side as 4/1 favourites to clinch the England international's signature.

However, the Gunners face stiff competition from Atletico Madrid, Leicester and Paris Saint-Germain.
Henderson, 31, has entered the final two years of his contract at Anfield, which expires in June 2023.
But there's been very little progress during discussions with the Merseyside club.
The Athletic claim talks over an extension are still taking place but stress that Liverpool’s owner FSG have 'bigger priorities' to address.
Those priorities include extensions for Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and full-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson.

Henderson's situation is similar to that of Georginio Wijnaldum, who left on a free transfer having failed to agree fresh terms.
And after 10 years, 392 appearances, the Premier League and Champions League titles – Sunderland-born midfielder could face the same fate.
The Gunners are the current favourites to lure Henderson to the Emirates at 4/1 with bookmakers Coral.

Coral's Harry Aitkenhead said: "Jordan Henderson is now into the last two years of his current contract at Liverpool.
"And if and when he does move on, Arsenal are our favourites to sign the midfielder."
Spanish champions Atletico Madrid are next in the betting market at 5/1.
Henderson is still good pals with Luis Suarez, who would reportedly 'relish' the opportunity to reunite at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.
Leicester are offered at 6/1 with ex-Reds boss Brendan Rodgers a huge admirer of his former pupil.
The same goes for Mauricio Pochettino at Paris Saint-Germain (7/1), who are keeping tabs on the situation.
Manchester City and Juventus are outsiders of the pack, both available at 8s.
