Everton Monitoring Situation Of Former Liverpool Star

Everton are one of four Premier League clubs monitoring the situation of ex-Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum, according to 90min

Since departing Anfield for PSG last summer, Wijnaldum has struggled to find form in the French capital and it’s now understood that he is likely to leave Ligue 1 in this transfer window. 

A host of European clubs from Italy, Germany and Spain are said to be interested in the Dutchman, and in the Premier League alone there are four clubs monitoring his situation.

Liverpool’s Merseyside rivals Everton are reportedly one of the parties interested in making a move for the former Red. 

The midfielder has two years remaining on his current deal at Parc Des Princes, so it appears a loan switch to Goodison Park may be more likely. 

The 31-year-old played a prominent role for Jurgen Klopp during his time at Anfield, winning both the Champions League and the Premier League, as well as netting 22 goals in 237 appearances for the club.

Wijnaldum left 12 months ago after a successful five-year spell on Merseyside, but his departure was met with mixed responses from the Liverpool fanbase.

Some claimed that the former Newcastle man left for merely financial reasons, while others understood his desire to seek a new opportunity.

The Netherlands international was recently burdened with the crown of Ligue 1 Flop Signing of the Year after a difficult debut campaign in Paris. 

PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino left him out of their squad entirely for their knockout stage games of the Champions League as he netted just three goals and three assists in 38 appearances last term across all competitions. 

As well as Everton, Leicester, West Ham and Wolves are supposedly interested in the combative midfielder.

While Klopp is looking to bolster his midfield options in this window as he looks to lower the age profile of his ageing squad, reputable journalist Fabrizio Romano has recently ruled out a return for Wijnaldum to the Kop. 

Instead, the likes of Gavi and Nicolo Barella have been identified as potential new recruits in this department.
