In a surprise turn of events, it seems Wijnaldum might end up staying in the Premier League after all, with Liverpool’s rivals Chelsea keen to snap him up, according to Marca.

The report states that the Blues are vying with the likes of Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain for Wijnaldum’s signature, though it’s also claimed that Liverpool have not yet entirely given up hope of keeping him either.

The 30-year-old has been a superb player for LFC and it could be a real blow to lose him on a free transfer, especially if he joins another Premier League side.
