Liverpool: Fans react to reports that Georginio Wijnaldum is likely to extend his contract at Anfield - Liverpool Transfer Rumours

Plenty of Liverpool fans have been reacting to reports that Georginio Wijnaldum is likely to sign a contract extension at Anfield, despite recent speculation about a potential exit from the club.

The Dutch midfielder, who is valued at £36m by TransferMarkt, has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona in recent weeks, with his former national team coach Ronald Koeman newly-installed in the Camp Nou dugout; and the 29-year-old has allowed his Anfield contract to enter its final year with no sign of penning a new deal.

However, journalist Kevin Palmer has tweeted (via @RealKevinPalmer) that Barcelona will need to sell before they can make new signings, with Dutch media claiming that Wijnaldum has had a change of heart about wanting a move to La Liga and is now likely to extend his contract at Liverpool.

There had been reports that the midfielder could have been offloaded in order to raise funds to sign major transfer target Thiago Alcantara, whom the Reds have been tracking for several months but are no closer to purchasing.
