According to news from Italian outlet TUTTOmercatoWEB, Inter Milan are interested in contemplating a move for Reds midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum as one of several options – with Liverpool potentially responding by offering the Dutchman a new contract.
Wijnaldum, who has started all but one league game for us this season, scoring three goals and amassing a 90.9% pass accuracy according to WhoScored, is currently on Inter’s radar as they weigh up their options for next season amid recent events which currently cloud football.
The 29-year-old, as per this report, is viewed as a potentially viable target as the Nerazzurri look to strengthen their midfield – but apparently the Reds are fending off that interest with a new contract offer.
Wijnaldum’s current deal runs out at the end of next season and could cost Inter around €30 million (£26.2 million) if they want to bring him to the San Siro.
Should Liverpool aim to tie down Wijnaldum?
To potentially throw the Italian giants off, manager Jurgen Klopp is reportedly set to table a new contract offer which would keep the Netherlands international tied down on Merseyside until 2024.
Indeed, judging by his last few seasons for us, letting him go right now could be an error – with the midfielder even proving at times he can match striker Divock Origi in terms of attacking threat regardless of the positional difference.
Even though Wijnaldum has played four times the amount of minutes, you could view this as a good example of his potential threat going forward.
Judging by his overall contributions, it’s barely any wonder why Klopp is looking to fight off any potential interest.
