Georginio Wijnaldum Could Depart PSG After Just One Season

Georginio Wijnaldum, Six Sports

According to a source, Paris Saint-Germain are willing to let go of Georginio Wijnaldum after just one season. With 38 appearances across all competitions, Wijnaldum finished his first season with PSG with three goals and three assists. However, only 18 of them were starts in Ligue 1.

After Wijnaldum’s contract with Liverpool expired last summer, he moved to the Parc des Princes. He had a fruitful time at Anfield, winning a Premier League and Champions League. Playing in a deeper role, he managed 22 goals and 15 assists for the Reds. One of the most memorable among them was the brace against Barcelona in the 2018/19 Champions League semi-final, en route to a legendary 4-0 comeback.

However, Georginio Wijnaldum found it difficult to replicate his form for the Parisians. He had trouble cementing a spot in Mauricio Pochettino’s starting lineup, though. In the middle of the park, Marco Verratti, Danilo Pereira, Idrissa Gueye, and Ander Herrera often played ahead of the Dutchman.

Possible Destinations For Wijnaldum

At least one or two fresh additions to PSG’s midfield are anticipated during the summer transfer window. They tried to sign Aurélien Tchouaméni, but Real Madrid won the race for him. Now, they are looking at Vítor Ferreira. 

Renato Sanches, a Portuguese midfielder for Lille who won the 2020–21 Ligue 1 championship Christophe Galtier, is also reported to be a target for incoming sporting director Luis Campos. These additions imply that Wijnaldum’s playing time at the club could decline as a result. 

According to the source, four English top-flight clubs are ready to seize the opportunity to sign Wijnaldum. Apparently, he has no qualms about a return to the English Premier League.  Leicester City, West Ham United, and Wolverhampton Wanderers are interested in his services. Furthermore, Serie A, La Liga, and the Bundesliga clubs are also in the mix for signing Wijnaldum.
