Tottenham have been offered the chance to sign former Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum on loan in January, according to 90min.
The Lowdown: Wijnaldum at PSG
Wijnaldum, labelled as ‘incredible’ by journalist Connor Dunn, left Anfield over the summer to sign for Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer.
How many signings does Conte need to make in January?
His representatives are thought to be working on a January exit as a result of his lack of game time, and a return to England could well be on the cards.
The Latest: Spurs offered Wijnaldum’s services
90min shared a story on Thursday regarding Wijnaldum’s future and the chances of a possible exit.
Within their report, they claimed that the 31-year-old representatives have contacted several Premier League clubs over the possibility of a loan move.
Tottenham are one of those who have been approached, with Fabio Paratici and co not yet dismissing the idea of a January transfer.
The Verdict: Avoid?
It seems as if Spurs are still to decide whether or not to move for Wijnaldum, however, they could be better off looking at the bigger picture and snubbing the chance to take the Dutch international on a temporary basis.
Yes, he has plenty of Premier League, Champions League and international experience, however, he is on mega-money and is now the wrong side of 30.
Antonio Conte may want to add to his midfield ranks with Tanguy Ndombele and Harry Winks linked with exits, but moving for someone like Franck Kessie on a permanent cut-price deal could be the smarter option.
He’s seven years Wijnaldum’s junior and a winter window move could well be on the cards according to a Spurs insider, so prioritising the Ivorian over the PSG man could be a smart decision in the long run.
