Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum is ready to leave Liverpool this summer to transfer to Barcelona as a free agent.
According to the medium The Sunday Times, the Dutchman has already agreed a pre-contract deal to become the first signing of Joan Laporta’s second spell as president.
The player’s current contract expires in the summer so it would be a free transfer at the end of June or the beginning of July.
Reinforcements in midfield are a priority for Ronald Koeman with the club doing little in the late summer due to financial difficulties.
The move is also seen as a vote of confidence for Koeman, whose team is finding form after a difficult first half of the season.
However, Catalan sources have stated that Barca have cooled with Wijnaldum thanks to the brilliant performances of the talents Ilaix Moriba and Pedri under Koeman this season. / Telegraphy /
