Highly rated Feyenoord winger Georginio Wijnaldum is a transfer target for Liverpool reports

The 20-year-old midfielder is one of the hottest prospects in Eredivisie and has attracted the attention of a number of leading European clubs including AC Milan, and Real Madrid.

But it is Liverpool who have registered the firmest interest with sources in the Dutch media claiming Anfield scouts were in the stands to watch the Feyenoord ace in action against Heracles in a recent league encounter.

Wijnaldum is a product of the youth system at De Kuip and made his senior debut for the outfit as a teenager back in 2007.


The Holland under 21 international is considered by many to be a 'rough diamond' - desperate to be developed into a superstar under the right tutelage; something he could achieve at Liverpool.

Kenny Dalglish has already demonstrated the influence he can have over his players, with the confidence instilled in the Liverpool squad the driving force behind their recent charge up the Barclays Premier League table.

Liverpool striker Dirk Kuyt could also prove to be a key figure in the quest to bring Wijnaldum to Anfield, with the former serving as a mentor to the latter during his time at Feyenoord.

"Dirk Kuyt is my role model. He left Feyenoord when he was the best, I am not that far," said Wijnaldum.
