Everton are reportedly now eyeing up a shock move to sign former Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum this summer.
The Lowdown: Liverpool great…
Wijnaldum will go down as one of the greats at Anfield, after helping them secure both the UEFA Champions League and Premier League titles.
Dubbed a ‘sensational‘ player by Jurgen Klopp just before he left to join PSG last summer, it has not quite worked out for him in France, as he has been limited to bit-part appearances, playing the full 90 minutes on just eight occasions.
The Latest: Everton interest
Writing in his latest piece for 90min, transfer expert Graeme Bailey has revealed that the Goodison Park outfit are now ‘keeping close tabs’ on Wijnaldum’s situation, although so are Leicester City, Wolves and West Ham United.
PSG already want to sell him after only signing him last summer, but a loan move looks more likely at this stage.
The Verdict: Smart move?
Given Wijnaldum’s experience in the top flight and his added winning mentality, signing him on loan could prove to be a smart piece of business from the Merseyside club.
Of course, there may be some grumblings from supporters due to his Liverpool connections, but the Toffees need to focus on bringing in players that will help them climb up the table next season and avoid another relegation scrap.
The fact that PSG want to move him on should also help with their pursuit of the Netherlands international.
