Wijnaldum and Memphis Depay are two of the most targeted Dutch players by Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman this season. Efforts for both are going smoothly in the ranks. Barcelona have approached Lyon for De Paul and Liverpool for Wijnaldum. Both are players who previously coached the Kueman Dutch team.
Liverpool have now announced their reaction to Wijnaldum. The player has been offered 15 million by the Premier League champions. But this amount is more than Barcelona expected. The 29-year-old was expected to earn 10 million from Barcelona. But Liverpool have asked for more than five million.
Wijnaldum has one more year to sign with Liverpool. Therefore, Barcelona wants to cross the 10 million mark. The player had told Liverpool that he did not want to renew his contract. Therefore, the player will leave the club as a free agent next season. Therefore, Barcelona say that the price is too high for the player.
But Liverpool are trying to find the money to sign Thiago Alcantara. Bayern are seeking 30 million for the player. Liverpool are trying to reduce this. Vinaldam arrived at Liverpool in 2016 from Newcastle United. He has played 187 games for the Reds so far.
