Liverpool: Fans rage as Barcelona hope to lower Gini Wijnaldum’s asking price

Liverpool: Fans rage as Barcelona hope to lower Gini Wijnaldum’s asking price - Liverpool Transfer Rumours

It looks extremely likely that Gini Wijnaldum will not be a Liverpool player for much longer amid serious interest from Barcelona.

The Catalonians have made him one of their top priorities this transfer window under the instruction of Ronald Koeman. Wijnaldum is a player the Dutchman knows well and is a fond admirer of after working with him during his time with the Netherlands national team.

Who would you rather see in the Liverpool midfield?

According to Diario Sport (relayed via @LFCTransferRoom), the midfielder is said to be one step away from making a similar switch to Philippe Coutinho. However, Barcelona are trying their luck at minimising Liverpool’s asking price.

The report claims that the La Liga giants are trying not to pay any more than a maximum of £13million for Wijnaldum, despite his current estimated value being £36million (via Transfermarkt). This has not gone down well with the Anfield faithful.

One supporter thinks selling the 29-year-old for such a low amount is ‘absolutely farcical’ whilst another has echoed this sentiment, branding it ‘ridiculous’.

Gerrard made more appearances for Liverpool than Lampard did for Chelsea, true or false?

Another Kopite has valued Wijnaldum against Thiago’s reported £26.6million asking price before coming to the conclusion that it’s ‘a joke’.
