Liverpool could be set to lose one of their most important players this summer, as Georginio Wijnaldum has begun to attract interest from across Europe.
The Dutch midfielder has been an integral part of Liverpool’s recent success in the league and Champions League, performing a role many would consider to be underappreciated.
It now looks likely that Wijnaldum will depart Anfield, with Barcelona a probable destination, according to Goal.com.
New Barca boss Ronald Koeman seems intent on linking up with his compatriot with whom he has worked at international level for the Netherlands. Barcelona are confident they will be able to secure a deal given he is into the final year of his Liverpool contract.
Dutch outlet Algemeen Dagblad have reported that extensive talks have already taken place and that Barcelona are close to securing the signing of Wijnaldum, as well as his countrymate Memphis Depay.
