Everton are one of four Premier League clubs interested in signing former Liverpool favorite Gini Wijnaldum from PSG – report
Since leaving Liverpool for PSG last summer, Gini Wijnaldum has struggled to settle in the French capital and he now believes the Ligue 1 champions are ready to let him leave the club.
Clubs from Italy, Germany and Spain are believed to be interested in the midfielder, and in the Premier League alone four clubs are monitoring the Dutchman’s situation, according to 90 minutes.
Everton are said to be one of the parties interested in making a move for the former Reds No.5, but with two years remaining on his current contract at Parc Des Princes, it seems a loan switch is more likely.
The 31-year-old was a vital player for Jurgen Klopp during his time at Anfield, winning the Champions League and Premier League during his time and scoring vital goals for the club.
He left 12 months ago when his contract expired and his departure received mixed responses from Liverpool supporters.
Some claimed the former Newcastle man left the club in order to earn a bigger salary elsewhere, while others understood his decision to seek a new challenge after giving it his all in a red shirt.
The Dutch international was crowned Ligue 1 flop signing of the year recently after a difficult start to his career at PSG.
He was completely dropped from their squad for the Champions League Round of 16 and registered just three goals and three assists in 38 appearances last season (in all competitions).
As well as the Goodison Park outfit, Leicester, West Ham and Wolves are said to be interested in the dynamic midfielder.
Liverpool are keen to bolster their midfield options in the near future, so you might wonder why the Reds aren’t asking to bring Wijnaldum back to Anfield, but Fabrizio Romano has recently quashed all reports linking him with a return to Merseyside.
It’s a shame how badly he’s struggled since leaving Liverpool, but surely the best way for him to get back to his best form is not to sign for the team just opposite Stanley Park, isn’t it not?
