Winger Georginio Wijnaldum has dropped a hint that he could soon leave Feyenoord to join Liverpool in the near future.
The highly rated wide man has been monitored closely for the past 18 months by Liverpool scouts.
Wijnaldum has recently suggested that he could soon be leaving Feyenoord to move to the Premier League and follow his Liverpool idol Dirk Kuyt to Anfield.
The 19-year-old said: "Dirk Kuyt is my role model. He left Feyenoord when he was the best, I am not that far."
However, one stumbling block between the two clubs is like to be the player’s valuation with Benitez likely to be given only limited funds this transfer window.
Since signing for Feyenoord in 2007, Wijnaldum has made over 60 appearances and has scored 7 goals for the Dutch side.
