Barcelona close to signing Liverpool star Gini Wijnaldum 

Barcelona could sign Liverpool star Gini Wijnaldum for £15 million, as per The Daily Express

The report says that the Reds officials are confident of striking an agreement with the Catalans knowing the Netherlands international can depart the club for free next year. 

Barca’s new boss Ronald Koeman knows the qualities of the Dutch having worked with him at the Netherlands national side and now wants to bring him to Camp Nou. 

Wijnaldum is a greatly famous player in Merseyside after contributing a significant part in the Reds’ recent successes, which includes the Champions League trophy and the Premier League title. 

He struck two crucial goals in the famous Champions League match against Barcelona in 2019, and he remained Jurgen Klopp’s most used midfielder last campaign when they lifted the league title.  

It is thought that the Anfield side wants to sell the 29-year-old to help their pursuit of Thiago Alcantara, who has strongly been linked to Liverpool. 

The Dutch footballer doesn’t look to be very willing to extend his stay at Anfield, so the Merseyside club are rightly keen to sell the player. 

No doubt that he has contributed a lot to the successes of the club, but it looks the right time to sell him, especially considering their pursuit of Thiago. 

The Spanish midfielder would be more of a deep-lying playmaker than Georginio, but the Reds can employ players like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones, and Takumi Minamino as more direct replacements.
