“It’s a rumour, I have nothing to say about it.”

Wijnaldum has been with Liverpool since 2016, having signed from Newcastle United. The midfielder has grown into an integral member of the team under Jurgen Klopp, playing a pivotal part in our Champions League and Premier League triumphs.

Given his standing within the team, losing him might come as a blow. At the same time, if contract negotiations fail to come to fruition, we should rather cash in this summer than losing him for nothing next year.

As of now Wijnaldum is clearly keeping his cards close to his chest. And, it remains to be seen how this transfer story develops in the coming weeks.
