Wijnaldum exit

Kopites are set for a painful goodbye this summer.

After five years at the club it seems inevitable that Gini Wijnaldum is set to leave.

The Dutchman has become an undroppable part of the Reds’ midfield but his contract expires this summer and there appears to be no renewal in sight.

Barcelona appear to be his most likely destination as it stands.

Liverpool should consider Franck Kessie

24-year-old Ivorian midfielder Franck Kessie is getting better by the year.

Raphinha, Coutinho and Tielemans: The signings Liverpool could make this summer

The AC Milan star is typically deployed in a holding role but his dynamic style sees him roaming the pitch.

This term he has nine goals in Serie A, he’s also registered three assists across his 27 games in the league.

His performances have earned him a WhoScored rating of 7.04.

Thiago precedent

According to Transfermarkt, Kessie’s contract expires in 2022.

This means that the midfielder will be entering the final year of his deal this summer.

Liverpool could take advantage and bag Franck Kessie for a bargain fee.

We saw the Reds use this tactic to land Thiago for a snip last summer.

Given the frugal nature of the Reds’ transfer policy, this move would make plenty of sense: he’s just 24-years-old and Milan may have to do a deal in order to avoid the risk of losing him on a free.
