As things stand, Georginio Wijnaldum can leave Liverpool as a free agent after this season as his contract at the Merseyside club will expire on June 30th.

After failing to sign the midfielder in the last two windows, Barcelona are still in the picture.

On Friday, Mundo Deportivo reported the 30-year-old’s name has been on the table at the Camp Nou since last summer, because Ronald Koeman likes him.

Saturday’s edition of Sport explains the Catalan club have the Reds player as one of their targets for the upcoming window.

Barca will have an advantage in signing the Netherlands international because he can join them on a free transfer, which suggests he will be leaving Anfield in the summer.

Bayern Munich, along with the La Liga side, are also ‘attentive’ to the former Newcastle United man’s situation, while he’s ‘willing to wait for a response’ from Barcelona.

It’s claimed the Spanish club will ‘not start making a decision’ on Jürgen Klopp’s man until they determine whether or not Koeman will continue beyond this campaign.

The former Everton manager is the ‘main supporter’ of his compatriot, and his exit could have an impact on Wijnaldum’s chances of joining Barcelona.
