Liverpool star Georginio Wijnaldum ‘reaches Inter Milan transfer agreement’ ahead of free switch amid Barcelona interest

LIVERPOOL midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has reportedly reached an agreement to sign for Inter Milan in the summer.

Wijnaldum, 30, sees his contract expire at Anfield at the end of the 2020-21 campaign.

And as reported by FC Inter 1908, journalist Sandro Sabatini has claimed Wijnaldum already has an understanding with the Italian club despite interest from Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.

He said: "From what I know Inter already have a handshake with Wijnaldum, already from last year.

"Then they decided to do it on a free transfer."

Wijnaldum signed for Liverpool from Newcastle for an initial fee of £23million in the summer of 2016.

Since then he has played 222 times for the reigning Premier League champions, scoring 22 goals.

Perhaps his most famous moment in a red shirt came when he netted twice to help Liverpool produce a sensational comeback to beat Barcelona in the Champions League semi-finals two years ago.

However, many pundits and fans have criticised the team in recent weeks after four Premier League defeats in a row essentially ended their bid to retain the title.

And Klopp could well see the departure of Wijnaldum as the first step to refreshing the squad and bringing in some new players.

Meanwhile, Inter are currently closing in on a first Serie A title in 11 years as they sit four points above rivals AC Milan.

Whether they clinch the scudetto or not, manager Antonio Conte will be looking to add players of the calibre of Wijnaldum to his squad as Inter seek to become a European powerhouse once more.
