    Article: Gini Wijnaldum is waiting for Liverpool to make a new contract offer.

    De Telegraaf says Wijnaldum has had a change of heart and is now awaiting a new Anfield contract offer.

    The 29-year-old is now into the final year of his LFC contract and has been linked with a move to Barcelona.


    It is believed there have been no recent contract talks between the player and the club, with reports in his native Holland suggesting Wijnaldum's wish for a four-year deal was the sticking point.

    Wijnaldum may now be prepared to commit his future to Liverpool.

    The midfielder is now awaiting Liverpool's next offer

    Barca are up shit creek financially. They can't even afford the £27m fee for Memphis Depay. So god.knows how they'd agree any fee with us for Gini

    Amazed more clubs are not in for Depay at that fee. He can be great on his day, and has definitely been much better since leaving United.

    I'd have him over Sarr all day, he is still only 26, and would be a better right now option to have in the squad. Although this is pointless as the reds haven't got a pot to piss in!

    Translation: Koeman has informed Gini there is no way Barcelona is paying for the transfer and his wages at Barcelona will most likely be LFC wages level or lower as they are broke.

    Kinda get that impression... that he was waiting to see if a better offer came his way.

    Still, works out for us seeing as we probably wouldn't have replaced him.

    Our midfield is starting to look delicious. There is every attribute you want with plenty of overlap. No longer having to wait with baited breath for Keita or Ox to "provide some creativity," we can get what we need from multiple sources and in multiple combinations. Can't wait!

    Article: Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman says he wants Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum to spearhead an exciting trio of January arrivals.

    Koeman previously revealed his interest in his fellow Dutchman, claiming he was on Barca’s list of targets.

    However he has now explained at length why he feels the 29-year-old would be a fantastic signing.

    He said (via the Daily Mirror): “Our interest for Wijnaldum is strong.

    “I wanted to bring him here in the summer because he has the ability to make fantastic runs from midfield and turn up in the box at the right moments.

    “I am convinced he can really add something to the team. But the financial situation of Barcelona was known at his club.”

    Wijnaldum and Koeman worked together while the latter was manager of the Netherlands national team. Indeed the Reds midfielder has a fantastic international goals record, scoring 15 times in 61 games.

    Barcelona could not afford a swoop this summer, though, with the club announcing losses of €97million (£88million). The club also blamed the coronavirus pandemic for a €203million (£184million) drop in revenue.

    The interest in Wijnaldum comes amid the midfielder’s contract nearing an end. He has entered the final year of his Anfield deal, with no sign of an extension on the horizon.

    As such, the Spanish giants could land a cheaper fee in January, or agree a pre-contract with the midfielder.

    He will go to Barca but they wont want to pay for him. I wonder if they would consider a swap for Umtiti in January? Might suit all sides

    Might be good timing if we need cash from a Gini sale in Jan to bring in a CB

    True, but hes experienced at the top level and should be available in Jan. Assuming FSG dont want to spend £30m+ mid year it may be a viable solution. He wouldnt be my first choice either, but these are extraordinary times in terms of cashflow and depth of squad.

    Can't argue with that.
