West Ham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are now aware they will face stiff competition from Roma in the summer transfer window for one of their targets.
According to Tribal Football, it is on the cards that Georginio Wijnaldum could depart Newcastle this summer following relegation and West Ham are believed to be very interested in landing him.
But the Hammers are not the only ones who are keen on signing the Holland international as it has been reported that Roma have also joined the race for his signature.
His decision to stay at St James’ Park hangs in the balance and the 25-year-old’s agent has said his star still has to think about his future. He said:
“Wijnaldum’s situation right now is very simple. Newcastle have been relegated to the second division, so now the player has to think about his future. At the moment I can’t say any more, and I can’t talk about negotiations. Roma are a great club, one of the best in Europe.”
And it’s no surprise that clubs are queuing up to sign him after he scored 11 goals last season, since arriving from PSV last summer.
