The Dutch international and the Liverpool star midfielder is on the verge of joining the Spanish Giant Barcelona in the next month. According to reports, Wijnaldum has confirmed that he will be leaving the Reds as his contract expires next month. He is thought to have agreed to a 3-year contract with the Catalans.
While the former Premier League champions are considering preparing a move for the Belgian international Tielemans. As Georginio Wijnaldum’s departure will leave behind some shoes to fill in. Jurgen Klopp is keen on strengthening his squad before the start of next season. According to reports from the Belgian outlet, Het Nieuwsblad the Reds are willing to sign Leicester’s Tielemans, who has emerged as a potential target this summer.
Tielemans has scored 9 goals and provided 6 assist in all competitions during the 2020-21 season. It also includes the sensational strike in the FA Cup final against Chelsea. Which eventually helped his side to secure their first-ever FA Cup trophy. It will be an interesting signing for the Reds if he ends up on the Anfield road.
Possibility of Tielemans joining Liverpool this summer.
Apart from Liverpool, Leicester City’s player of the year is also thought to be on the radar of Manchester United and Barcelona. However, the Foxes, who yet again failed to qualify for the Champions League football this season would not sanction an exit on the cheap for the Belgium men.
The 24-year-old midfielder is said to have a contract with Leicester until 2023. The Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers would be keen to keep Tielemans at the King Power. However, the Belgian international would be willing to play and compete on the highest level i.e Champions League.
It will be interesting to see how much will Leicester tag him for if they let him go this summer. Liverpool will be eager to get Tielemans for as cheap as possible. Since they have just completed the signing of Konate for €41.5 million recently.
