However, following the impressive emergence of Ilaix Moriba, the report states that whilst the experienced ace remains an ‘affordable’ option, Barca will look to prioritise signings in other areas.
Jurgen Klopp will no doubt be keen to retain the services of the man he recently described as this seasons ‘most consistent’ player.
During his time on Merseyside, Wijnaldum has been a reliable servant, perhaps never more so than this campaign as those around him suffer.
As the midfielder alluded to himself this week, it would be a sad day should Wijnadlum leave the club this summer.
Having built up a rapport with both teammates and the supporters, there aren’t many who would be pleased to see the Dutchman leave.
Barcelona’s potential absence from the pursuit hands Liverpool a huge boost in their hopes to keep Wijnaldum, with other offers on the table, arguably less attractive propositions.
