The report adds that some senior figures at Barcelona were not convinced by Wijnaldum’s signing either, and the lure of working under Mauricio Pochettino was also a key factor in Wijnaldum’s decision to join PSG.

Wijnaldum featured in all 38 Premier League matches during his farewell season with Liverpool, and he amassed a total of 22 goals and 16 assists in 237 appearances for the Merseyside giants.
