Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp looks set to further bolster his midfield by making a move for Newcastle United midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum.

This has been reported by the Liverpool Echo, who claim that the Reds will have to pay as much as £25 million to secure the Dutch international's services in this transfer window. 

Wijnaldum, 25, was one of the bright sparks of Newcastle's season as they were relegated from the Premier League last term.

Newcastle only brought the player to the Premier League for £14.5 million from PSV one year ago and it now appears that they want to secure a profit on the player. 

That's why, then, the Merseyside outfit will have to pay such a huge sum to bring him to Anfield. 


After signing Sadio Mane from Southampton, Liverpool already have a whole host of creative midfielders at the club, but that hasn't prevented their interest in Wijnaldum. 

It certainly won't be easy for the club to claim Wijnaldum's signature - Premier League outfit Tottenham are also interested - but it's fair to say that Klopp is intent on changing the dynamic of his side ahead of the new campaign. 


As you can imagine, Liverpool fans have duly reacted on social media.
