Time could be up on Merseyside for Gini Wijnaldum who will not be offered a new contract following the expiration of his current terms.
That’s according to The Telegraph’s Chris Bascombe (relayed via @LFCTransferRoom), who claims that the Dutchman could become a free agent once the final year on his contract is up.
Should Liverpool keep or sell Gini Wijnaldum?
Fans have been hoping to see Wijnaldum pen a new deal with Liverpool, but this latest update doesn’t cast a good feeling over the situation.
The 29-year-old initially joined the club back in 2016 from Newcastle. The Toon agreed a fee of £25million for the midfielder, who looks like he could be leaving for free next summer. Wijnaldum has made a total 186 appearances for the Reds, accumulating 19 goals in that time (via Transfermarkt).
As expected, plenty of Reds fans are unhappy with the idea of losing Wijnaldum and have lashed out in the replies to the news. One supporter has described it as an ‘absolute shambles’ not to offer the Dutchman a new contract. Indeed, he has established himself as somewhat of a cult hero after his heroics against Barcelona in last year’s Champions League semi-final.
Another fan has echoed the sentiment and has described the news as ‘disappointing’.

If he doesn't want to sign a new deal, fair enough. To not offer him a new deal is an absolute shambles.
