Fabrizio Romano corroborates Anfield Central exclusive on Wijnaldum’s future

Georginio Wijnaldum is considering Liverpool’s contract offer and will inform the club of his decision in the coming days, Fabrizio Romano reports for the Guardian.

We broke this story exclusively on Boxing Day and now, Romano, who is widely considered to be the most reliable football journalist, has stated that Wijnaldum wants more time to decide on what he wants to do.

The Reds have made what will be their final offer to the Dutch international and after a good start to the season, Jurgen Klopp and his coaching staff are keen to hold onto a player they developed into a world-class midfield operator.

He arrived from Newcastle United in 2016 with a reputation for being an exciting left winger that was also able to play as an attacking midfielder but Klopp has transformed him into one of the most effective no.8s in the world.

Wijnaldum can also play to a high level as a no.6 and has even played as a centre back for Liverpool.

As we reported two days ago, Romano has claimed that the former PSV Eindhoven star will inform the Anfield outfit of his intentions in the coming days and if he decides to leave, they will be the first to know.
