Barcelona have stepped up their pursuit of Georginio Wijnaldum and held meetings
with the midfielder’s representatives on Tuesday morning.
The Netherlands international is able to move on a free transfer this summer when
his Liverpool contract expires on June 30 and has been covered by a number of clubs,
including Bayern Munich.
It will be a busy day at the Camp Nou as Joan Laporta and his board are also deliberating
on the future of Ronald Koeman, but signing Wijnaldum is not believed to be in any
way dependent on the decision on Koeman‘s future.
Wijnaldum worked with boss Ronald Koeman on the Netherlands national team and
is said to be on the verge of penning a three-year contract at the Catalan giants.
Laporta is set to hold a face-to-face meeting with the Dutchman later with a decision
potentially being reached regarding his continuity at the club going into next season.
