Gini Wijnaldum to PSG
Liverpool fans are in mourning with Gini Wijnaldum leaving the club this summer.
The Dutchman is heading to PSG on a free transfer, ending his five-year stay at Anfield.

He was a mammoth presence in the middle, we need to sign a replacement.
Liverpool target Marcel Sabitzer update
There are dozens of players who have been suggested as successors to Gini.
Bild claimed a couple of months ago that Liverpool want Marcel Sabitzer.
The Austrian utility man is entering the final year of his contract at RB Leipzig.
According to The Athletic in their The Radar roundup, the midfielder is available for just €15m (£13m).
Perfect Gini replacement
Jürgen Klopp values versatility highly.
The boss likes to work with a small squad, therefore a player who can fill in in a number of positions is useful.
This season alone Sabitzer played in at least five positions according to WhoScored.
He netted eight and assisted three for Leipzig in the league this term.
Given that he’s just 27-years-old, he could be bargain given his versatility.
There is also the consideration that the German club play a similar brand of football to the Reds, he should have no problem adjusting.
