This summer will no doubt see a big change within the Liverpool squad’s balance with players set to leave and the Reds set to make a few moves in the market to strengthen their options off the bench.
Plenty of names have been linked with a move away but one of the biggest sagas of the year has been the future of Liverpool’s 30-year-old Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum – who has been linked heavily with a move away with his most likely destination being Barcelona after manager Ronald Koeman said he was confident of securing his signature in the summer.

Although the Times reported on the supposed deal, reports from Spain via ESportts RAC1 reporter Gerard Romero, suggest that Barcelona has denied that an agreement has been made…

Whatever the truth is, it would be a shame to see Wijnaldum leave the club in the summer and if he does, he will leave a massive hole in the squad that will take a lot to be filled.
