Gini Wijnaldum’s camp are still waiting for Liverpool to open talks about a new contract at Liverpool, according to Sky Sports.
The midfield powerhouse made 35 Premier League starts, scoring four times as the Reds marched to their first top-flight title in 30 years.
Although failing to trouble the headline writers and plaudits, Wijnaldum has been integral to Liverpool’s title success.
And he is believed to be well-liked by boss Jurgen Klopp after he arrived from Newcastle for £25million in the summer of 2016. In fact, he was one of Klopp’s first significant signings in the summer of 2016.
There’s no way that Klopp could replace the six-goal star for that sort of money and, as per the source, they are not actively looking to add to their midfield options.
That means that the Thiago Alcantara speculation is coming from the Bayern Munich man’s camp. TEAMtalk told you last month that Klopp was not interested in a move for Thiago, but the talk from Germany has been non-stop.
However, if the Wijnaldum situation does not change, then so might Klopp’s plans.
The Dutch midfielder has entered the final 12 months or his deal and there have been no sign of talks over an extension.
That in itself is strange for a club whose transfer negotiations have been pretty flawless over the last few years.
