Barcelona expected to submit official bid to Liverpool for Wijnaldum in ‘next few days’

Wijnaldum’s future uncertain

Georginio Wijnaldum has, of course, spent the last four and bit years plying his trade with Liverpool.

In that time, the Dutchman has firmly cemented himself as an integral member of Jurgen Klopp’s midfield.

Despite this, the 29-year-old’s future at Anfield is actually somewhat up in the air.

Wijnaldum has entered the final year of his current Liverpool deal.

And despite having been so crucial to the Merseyside outfit’s recent success over the last few seasons, his long-term future has been cast into doubt

Recent reports have even gone as far as to claim that the Premier League champions have no plans to offer Wijnaldum a new deal.

Barcelona to make Wijnaldum bid

As well as an uncertain contract situation, Wijnaldum also appears to be attracting interest from a top European side.

Said club is FC Barcelona, with rumours of the Spanish outfit’s interest in Wijnaldum intensifying shortly after Ronald Koeman took the reins at the Camp Nou.

Koeman left his role as the Dutch national team coach, where he featured Wijnaldum regularly, to join Barca.

Now, this weekend, further updates concerning Barca’s reported interest in the Liverpool star have come to light.

First up, the Mirror reported late on Saturday evening that Liverpool have set a price-tag for their soon to be out of contract star, claiming they have told Barca it will take £15m to land Wijnaldum.

Fabrizio Romano then reported on Sunday morning that the Blaugrana have contacted Wijnaldum’s agent and are expected to submit an official bid for the midfielder in the next few days:
