What’s the latest?
According to The Irish Daily Star newspaper (via Cashmere doors), Liverpool could consider a loan for Georginio Wijnaldum this summer.
According to the report, Liverpool are adamant in their interest in signing Jude Bellingham but Borussia Dortmund are unwilling to sell the youngster in 2022. As a result, there are rumors the club could bring back the former midfielder from Liverpool on loan from Paris Saint Germain.
Klopp would love this
There’s no doubt that Wijnaldum’s surprising return to Anfield would be something Jurgen Klopp would love, as the German manager has always held the Dutch midfielder in high regard.
Klopp hailed the 31-year-old star “sensational” ahead of what was Wijnaldum’s last game at Anfield with his contract expiring in 2021:
“Gini’s character is beyond question: he’s a sensational guy, completely committed to the team and the club until the last day, and we’ll see when that is.”
A contract extension for the midfield maestro was not meant to be and Wijnaldum joined PSG in free transfer with a salary of £180,000 per week this season, but his move to the French club has been a disaster from start to finish over the past 12 months.
The Dutchman scored Three goals and three assists in 38 appearances in all competitions for PSG, but was cruelly vote ‘The Ligue 1 flop of the season’ after failing to establish a consistent role and position in the team during his debut season, which Mauricio Pochettino should potentially be blamed for.
Despite his troubles in France, Wijnaldum rarely failed to deliver hard work and efficiency when deployed in the Liverpool side playing a vital role in the side’s first-ever Premier League title win and eventually ended his tenure at the club marked as a “Legend” and ‘the architect of our success’ by the Reds boss.
That being said, it wouldn’t be the worst idea for FSG to bolster the midfield this summer with a player who has experience in the squad and can make an instant impact ahead of their pursuit of Bellingham in the summer. next.
