It's looking 'increasingly likely' that Gini Wijnaldum will leave Liverpool

Unfortunately, another fairly reliable source closely related to Liverpool has stated that Gini Wijnaldum is looking more and more likely to leave the club this summer.

According to the Goal journalist, Barcelona are confident of landing the midfielder, but have yet to lodge an offer to Liverpool, despite having reportedly agreed terms with Wijnaldum.

Jones wrote: "Can you imagine a situation, maybe nine or 12 months ago, where Liverpool – and Liverpool fans – would have even contemplated letting Gini Wijnaldum leave the club?

"And yet here we are, September 2020, and the Netherlands international looks increasingly likely to depart before the transfer window closes.

"Liverpool insist there has been no contact between the two clubs, but that is expected to change.

"On Sunday, it was reported in the English press that a fee of £15million will be enough to convince the Premier League champions to do business.

"Does that seem a little on the skinny side? It should. Wijnaldum may already have entered the final year of his Liverpool contract, he may be a couple of months short of his 30th birthday, but his value to Jurgen Klopp’s side is clear.

"And it should not be underestimated.

"Liverpool will miss him if he goes, that is for sure. They will miss his reliability in possession, his appreciation of space, his relentless work ethic to close down space, apply pressure and fill the gaps that others leave.

"They will miss that remarkable strength with his back to play, that composure in the tightest of spaces, that penchant for a big goal in a big game."
