Wijnaldum replacement needed

This summer will see the end of Gini Wijnaldum’s contract.

The 30-year-old Dutchman has become a key cog in the Reds’ midfield machine over the years.

His ability to retain possession is something to be marvelled at and his work rate has made him a Kop hero.

Unfortunately the player and club have been unable to agree on terms for an extension of his deal.

As a result the midfielder is nearly certain to leave this summer with Barcelona seeming his most likely destination. He’ll need replacing.

Liverpool want Teun Koopmeiners

There are bound to be plenty of midfielders named as the Dutchman’s successor.

According to Calciomercato, Liverpool want Teun Koopmeiners from AZ Alkmaar.

The 23-year-old has been in phenomenal form in the Eredivisie this term.

He has bagged 15 goals and five assists from midfield, earning a WhoScored rating of 7.44.

He is noted for his passing ability as well as his eye for a tackle and his keen concentration in the game.
