Liverpool are set for a transformative summer. The Reds have been in turmoil throughout the season due to a string of devastating injuries. At the moment it’s unclear whether or not we’ll lose a key midfielder. Some Liverpool fans have reacted to reports that Gini Wijnaldum could still sign a new contract.
Gini Wijnaldum exit rumours
For the past year there has been persistent speculation around the future of Gini Wijnaldum.
The Dutchman has entered the final year of his deal and as such the sharks are circling.
Many thought that Barcelona would move for the midfielder last summer when Ronald Koeman was brought in but they have bided their time – in other words, they were too skint to pay a fee.
Since the summer the Reds have failed to agree a new deal for Gini and with the end of the season approaching his exit appears an inevitability.

Liverpool could keep Gini Wijnaldum
Apparently it’s not over until the fat lady sings.
According to Sky, Liverpool are still hoping to keep Gini Wijnaldum.
The outlet reported that Barcelona are considering promoting Ilaix Moriba into a more prominent role in the squad rather than signing Wijnaldum.
Sky claim that there is still an offer on the table for the Dutchman.
Should the Reds manage to convince the midfielder to sign the deal then it could well be one of their most important signings of the summer.
His tireless work rate and perpetual availability has been crucial to the Reds in recent years.
There has been a mixed response with some desperate for the midfielder to stay and others tired of the saga dragging on.
