Gini Wijnaldum departure

This summer sees the end of the Wijnaldum era at Anfield.

Back in 2016 Liverpool signed the Dutchman from a relegated Newcastle United.

He arrived as an attacking midfielder with an eye for a goal.

He leaves as an untackleable ball winner. A man you simply cannot press.

Gini Wijnaldum leaves Liverpool as a modern day legend of the club.

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

The midfielder rarely missed a game during his stint at the club, he was a nigh on ever present on our path to glory.

Considering how many minutes he racked up in Red signing a replacement should be a matter of urgency.

Didi Hamann on Liverpool target Florian Neuhaus

Youri Tielemans has emerged as a potential target for the Reds, along with Yves Bissouma.

However, Liverpool appear most intent on signing Florian Neuhaus from Borussia Monchengladbach.

AS in Spain recently claimed that it would cost the Reds £34m to land the 24-year-old.

Didi Hamann has told The Athletic that he thinks Liverpool could bag Neuhaus much cheaper and the player’s value will rocket over the years:

“I think €40 million would be a bit steep. I think you’d be able to get him for less. About £25 million would be right in my eyes. He’s got the potential to kick on and be worth double or even treble that in a few years.”

What RTK has to say

Liverpool trebling the midfielder’s value then cashing in would be a very FSG move.

Whilst some see being a ‘selling club’ as a mark of weakness, it is increasingly becoming important in the modern game.

The Reds buying low and selling high has helped us achieve the success we have during the Jürgen Klopp era. Neuhaus in for £25m and out for £75m would be just another masterstroke.
