Wijnaldum, who signed for Liverpool from Newcastle United for a transfer fee of £25 million back in the summer of 2016, has been immense for the club.
Wijnaldum has arguably become Jurgen Klopp’s most consistent midfielder. He rarely puts in a poor performance.
Liverpool do risk losing Wijnaldum on a free transfer come the summer of 2021, but hopefully the club and the Dutchman work something out in regards to a new contract.
If the Dutchman does not sign a new contract and Liverpool look to move him on, there is a chance that Soumare, who has been linked with a move to Anfied in various reports, will be considered by the Reds.
The report from the Evening Standard does suggest that it is unlikely that the signing of Soumare will occur, but nothing has been ruled out.
Liverpool do possess plenty of talent within midfield, and hopefully Wijnaldum is still apart of that midfield in the years to come.
The Reds really can’t afford to lose the Dutchman. It is frustrating that he has not signed a new deal as of late, but hopefully the club work something out soon.
