Georginio Wijnaldum set to join PSG

Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum is set to join French side Paris St-Germain on a free transfer.

Wijnaldum opted not to sign an extension to his contract with Liverpool at the end of the season.

It was anticipated the 30-year-old was going to join Barcelona when his Reds deal expires at the end of June.

However, PSG, who finished second in Ligue 1 last season, are understood to have stepped in with a better offer.

Wijnaldum heading to France

It has been reported that Wijnaldum has opted to join the French giants.

The presence of Mauricio Pochettino at PSG is also thought to have been a factor.

The midfielder spoke highly of Pochettino before he joined Liverpool.

Although the deal is not completed, it is now anticipated the Dutchman will move to the French capital.

Wijnaldum, who is part of the Netherlands squad for Euro 2020, made 237 appearances for Liverpool.

At Liverpool, he won the Premier League and Champions League.

Barcelona snubbed

Barca had the chance to raise their offer for the 30-year-old.

But they decided against upping their bid just days after completing free deals for Manchester City pair Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia.

Wijnaldum is set to move to Parc des Princes on a contract until 2024 after going back on his verbal agreement on a Camp Nou switch.

He previously played for PSV Eindhoven, Feyenoord and Newcastle United before joining Liverpool.
