Barcelona are still in the picture for Georginio Wijnaldum, a year after they failed to acquire the Liverpool midfielder’s services.
The Catalan club’s interest in driven by their manager, Ronald Koeman, and they are set to face competition from Chelsea and two other clubs.
That’s what Marca are reporting as they explain the Blues, along with Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain ‘want to incorporate’ the 30-year-old in the next window.
No additional information is provided about Chelsea, Juve or PSG interest in Jürgen Klopp’s man.
Wijnaldum’s current deal expires at the end of the season and earlier reports indicated the Netherlands international has no intention of renewing his contract with the Reds.
The La Liga side have long been chasing the Dutchman, while Thomas Tuchel’s side join Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain as new suitors for the former Newcastle United man.
Despite the player’s contract situation, Marca adds the Merseyside club have ‘not lost hope’ of retaining Wijnaldum beyond this season, by tying him down to a new deal.
Liverpool will need to hurry up as there’s not a lot of time left to extend the player’s contract.
