Wijnaldum 'asks Liverpool for more time to weigh-up new offer'

Georginio Wijnaldum ‘asks Liverpool for more time to weigh-up new contract offer’ but vows to tell Reds his decision before speaking to other clubs in January

  • Liverpool star Georginio Wijnaldum has asked for more time on contract offer 
  • The midfielder can talk to clubs from the beginning of the January window 
  • The Reds presented a new offer to the 30-year-old at the start of December 

Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has asked for more time as he considers signing a new deal at the club.

The Dutchman, whose contract runs out next summer, is able to start talking to clubs from the beginning of the upcoming January transfer window.

Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool have failed to convince Wijnaldum to sign a new deal at Anfield yet, as the midfielder asked for more time to make a decision, according to the Guardian.

The Reds presented a new offer to the 30-year-old at the start of December but this week, the player asked for a few more days as the clock continues to tick over his future.

He did, however, ensure the club that he would inform them of his decision should he want to leave before he begins talking to other clubs.

Barcelona appear to be frontrunners to claim Wijnaldum’s signature should he decide to leave the Premier League champions.

A move to the Nou Camp would see him reunite with former Holland manager Ronald Koeman, who took over at the Catalan club during the summer. 

Inter Milan have also been linked with the midfielder.
