Liverpool fans could be dealt some good news ahead of the transfer window as talks with Gini Wijnaldum over a new contract are reportedly progressing.
According to sport journalist Fabrizio Romano (relayed via @LFCTransferRoom), discussions between the Reds and the Dutchman’s agent over a contract extension are ‘going so well’. If Wijnaldum pens a new deal, it will likely see him commit his long-term future to the club, and will ease the minds of fans.
Who is the better Liverpool midfielder?
As it stands, the midfielder is heading into the final 12 months of his current deal, and supporters are eager to see him tied down. Wijnaldum has been influential over the last year, netting a brace in Liverpool’s Champions League semi-final clash against Barcelona to see them overturn a 3-0 deficit, and ultimately go on to win the competition.
Reds fans have responded to the positive contract talk and are thrilled to discover the negotiations are going well. One supporter has tweeted: ‘Finally some good news’ as many recover from the shock blow of target Timo Werner potentially joining Chelsea.
Finally some good news.

Great news tying down a first team regular who helped us win the champions league last season and about to win the premier league. No points fixing something that ain’t broken
