Liverpool are going to have to reshuffle the squad over the summer. This season has been a disaster with the lack of depth in the side thoroughly exposed. One man who will need replacing is our Dutch midfielder, some Liverpool fans have reacted to news that Gini Wijnaldum has reportedly agreed a deal with Barcelona.
There is not a midfielder on the planet like Gini Wijnaldum.
The Dutchman’s game has become so unique and nuanced over the years that replacing him will prove a difficult task.
When we signed the 30-year-old from Newcastle United he was an aggressively attacking player.
In the years since he’s become a box-to-box dynamo, a man tasked with winning and keeping the ball.

There’s nobody who can shield a ball like Gini.
Unfortunately, with the midfielder’s contract expiring in the summer, the Reds and the Dutchman have reached an impasse.
He wants a well deserved pay rise, the club aren’t going to oblige due to his age.
Gini Wijnaldum set for Barcelona
There are going to be plenty of potential suitors for the midfielder.
According to The Times one of these suitors has already won the race.
Duncan Castles has reported that Gini Wijnaldum has agreed a contract with Barcelona.
The Dutchman would become the first arrival of the second Joan Laporte era, a massive backing shown for Ronald Koeman given that the gaffer allegedly made signing Wijnaldum a priority.
Wherever he goes he will be sorely missed by Kopites.

Some fans are livid that FSG wouldn’t give him the pay hike.

Fans are planning ahead.
