Liverpool aren’t often caught out when it comes to the transfer market. The Reds are typically three steps ahead of their rivals when it comes to ins and outs. They are currently in a predicament, though. According to 90Min, Chelsea and Man City are interested in signing Gini Wijnaldum on a free transfer.
Few players embody the gegenpressing system more than Gini Wijnaldum.
The Dutchman is a Jürgen Klopp player down to his socks.
He epitomises everything the coach wants: he is determined, versatile and relentless.
His versatility is evident in how he transitioned from attacking midfielder upon his arrival at the club into a box-to-box ball winner in the years since.
He is constantly chasing down lost causes and keeping the ball against all odds.
The 30-year-old also pops up with vital goals, including an unforgettable brace against Barcelona.
Chelsea and Man City want Wijnaldum
There are a number of clubs linked with the midfielder.
Last summer Gini entered the final year of his contract at Anfield.
No movement on a new deal has led to speculation of a free transfer at the end of the campaign.
According to 90Min, Chelsea and Man City are interested in signing Gini Wijnaldum should he fail to agree a new contract with the Reds.
They face competition from Barcelona and Inter Milan among others.
What RTK has to say
Chelsea or Man City signing Gini Wijnaldum is a nightmare.
There’s no way we can let it happen.
Hopefully the Dutchman has enough respect for the fans and the club not to make a move to a potential title rival.
More ideally we will keep him at Anfield, he is utterly undroppable and it’d be a travesty to lose him to anybody.
