It seems Wijnaldum now has a tempting offer from Barcelona, who have offered him a three-year deal worth €8million a year, so €24m in total for the duration of his contract, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Wijnaldum has been a star performer for Liverpool for a number of years now and could be a big loss for Jurgen Klopp’s side if he does decide to move on.

Barca, meanwhile, would be landing a superb all-rounder in midfield who could add work rate and experience as well as a goal threat from the middle of the park.
