Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Barcelona are edging closer to sealing a move for out-of-contract Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum this summer.

The 30-year-old Dutchman will be a free agent at the end of this season and he appears ready for a fresh challenge away from Anfield.

He was part of the squad that helped Jurgen Klopp win Champions League and Premier League in successive seasons.

However, he is wanted by Ronald Koeman who has been trying to rebuild the Barca team since he became the boss in August 2020.

Sources claim Wijnaldum had a dream to play in Barcelona’s famous colours, with Football Insider reporting the Catalan club are in pole position.

The publication reveals that the Dutch-born manager has lined up the Reds star as one of his five key transfer targets in the summer with the cash-strapped La Liga giants looking to snap up the best free transfers.
