Liverpool runs the risk of “losing Georginio Wijnaldum” at the end of the season with a star entering its contract last year
- Georginio Wijnaldum has only 18 months to go with his contract with Liverpool
- The Dutchman could be sold at the end of the season for a big profit
- A bidding war is likely to follow, with Wijnaldum no less than admirers in Europe
- The 29-year-old arrived for £ 25 million after signing Newcastle in 2016
Liverpool runs the risk of losing the Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum, as the 29-year-old enters the final stages of his contract in Anfield.
Although Jurgen Klopp recently extended a number of deals for first team stars, Wijnaldum is one of the few whose future remains uncertain.
The former Newcastle man will be available to leave the club for free in 2021 and Liverpool is evaluating the various options, including a possible sale at the end of the current campaign, according to the athletics.

Allegedly the Merseyside club is still looking for a new and lucrative deal for the Dutchman, but he also wants to keep his services for another 18 months before his current deal ends.
The report adds that Liverpool would still be satisfied if Wijnaldum were to leave as a free agent, given the value he has given the club since his cost-effective move of £ 25 million from Newcastle in 2016.
Another option is for Klopp’s party to sell the player during the upcoming summer transfer window, to receive a high compensation for the 29-year-old, who is likely to cause a bidding war.

Wijnaldum is said to have strong admirers in both Spain and Italy, while rival Premier League clubs are also willing to take a step.
In Liverpool’s recent controversial contract extensions, Klopp himself saw his future set to Merseyside, while James Milner followed quickly and wrote a two-year deal.
In the meantime, Liverpool will not be looking to raise huge funds to facilitate eye-catching transfers, despite the fact that it is related to Jadon Sancho and Kylian Mbappe.
It is clear that the hierarchy of the Reds would like to continue their winning formula on the transfer market by buying players who are still making their name in the sport.

Although Virgil van Dijk and goalkeeper Alisson Becker were exceptions for a lot of money in the past, it is now assumed that Liverpool is now convinced that they do not have certain gaps in the team that require urgent attention.
The Klopp men remain at the top of the Premier League table and are 13 points free from the second-placed Leicester with a game in hand.
