Gini Wijnaldum’s agent has openly encouraged coversations with Champions League holders Bayern Munich, the Liverpool man’s current contract set to expire at the end of the season.
The Dutch midfielder has been a superb acquisition since making the move from Newcastle United back in 2016, playing a key role in the club’s Champions League and Premier League successes in recent years under Jurgen Klopp.
The 30-year-old ensured legendary status at Anfield after coming off the bench to help spark that unbelievable second-leg comeback against Barcelona two years ago, the former PSV man netting twice in the second-half, with the Reds going on to edge past Tottenham in the final.
While he’s remained a vital cog to Klopp’s side since then, the all-action midfielder appears keen to move on from the Merseyside club, his current deal set to run out at the end of the season, with seemingly little hopes of penning a new deal.
With the player available to enter into discussions with prospective new clubs, his agent, Humphry Nijman, has talked up the possibility of joining Bundesliga leaders Bayern this summer.
Speaking to Sport1, he said: “FC Bayern is a great club. If you are interested in him, you are welcome to talk to us.”
The soon-to-be league champions are seemingly looking to bolster their squad after a disappointing window last summer, a factor that reportedly contributed to Hansi Flick’s decision to call time on his remarkable, yet brief, tenure as manager, with RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann set to replace him at the end of the season.
While the club currently have the likes of Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka in their midfied ranks, there is little depth beyond that, a fact that was made clear by Flick having to deploy David Alaba in central midfield during their eventual Champions League quarter-final defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.
A move to Germany would come as something of a surprise for Wijnaldum, the player having long been rumoured to be linking up with compatriot Ronald Koeman at Barcelona, although such speculation has gone quiet in recent months.
