Meanwhile, PSG are reportedly eyeing Portuguese midfielder Renato Sanches as his replacement.

It was a difficult period for Wijnaldum, who was lured to the French capital on a free transfer last year after he refused to sign a contract extension with Liverpool.

But he now looks set to leave the French side after just one season in which he was declared the ‘Ligue 1 flop of the season’.

The box-to-box midfielder played 38 games under Mauricio Pochettino last season, although many of those came from the bench.

The Holland international won the Premier League, Club World Cup and Champions League during his five-year stay at Anfield after signing for £25 million from Newcastle United in 2016.

He proved a huge success with the Reds in 179 of the club’s 190 Premier League appearances between the 2016/17 and 2020/21 seasons.

He played 237 games in all competitions and scored 22 goals during his time at Anfield.

The 24-year-old impressed with the Ligue 1 side, making 91 appearances and scoring seven goals in his three years at the club.

He was limited to 25 league appearances last season after undergoing surgery for a hamstring injury that left him out for seven weeks at the start of the season.

Before that, he was instrumental in helping Lille lead PSG to the Ligue 1 title in the 2020-21 season.
