Liverpool are going to have to replace Gini Wijnaldum this summer. The Reds can’t afford to repeat the mistake made with Dejan Lovren last year. There are plenty of avenues to explore, one could be reuniting Thiago with a former teammate. Liverpool should consider a bold bid for Leon Goretzka at Bayern Munich.

Wijnaldum departure

The Reds are set to lose Gini Wijnaldum this summer and it is a travesty.

The Dutchman has become a modern day icon during his five year stint at Anfield.

He has scored some vitally important goals, including a brace in that game against Barcelona.

Despite his importance to the side the Reds have failed to agree fresh terms with the player.

His contract expires at the end of the season and Barcelona are expected to snap him up on a free transfer as a result.

Liverpool should target Leon Goretzka

Replacing Gini will be no easy task for the Reds.

The Dutchman has played more minutes in the Klopp midfield than any other player since his 2016 arrival.

We should be ambitious when recruiting his successor, anything less could be a misstep.

Liverpool should consider a move for Leon Goretzka from Bayern Munich.

The 26-year-old German has established himself as a mainstay of the Bayern midfield in recent years.

This term he has 18 starts and seven sub showings to his name.

He’s notched five goals and five assists in these games.

Of course, the one concern with Goretzka is his worrying injury record.

However, he could be available for a bargain fee given that this summer he’ll be entering the final year of his contract.

We managed to snap up Thiago on the cheap under the same circumstances.

Goretzka has been vital to Bayern’s recent dominance, snapping him up to replace Gini Wijnaldum would be an impressive, ambitious move.
