SunSport now reports that the Spanish League giants believe the deal is 95 per cent done with the current season set to expire in May.

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.

Wijnaldum's future at Anfield remains uncertain after stating he does not know where he will be next campaign. He said:

"It's not as easy as everyone thinks it is to make some decisions about your future. You have to think about everything and then first negotiate with the clubs and it's so difficult and it's why it takes so long."

Barcelona chiefs will take that non-committal to Anfield as the green light for a summer deal.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has agreed to join Serie A giants Inter Milan according to reports from Italy.

The midfielder’s future remains in doubt amid reports that Catalan club Barcelona are also interested in him as he enters into the last few months of his contract.

He is bid to leave the Premier League club on a free transfer at the end of the season and has been tipped to reunite with Ronald Koeman.
