Gini Wijnaldum’s agent issues Bayern Munich transfer plea

The agent of Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has appeared to confirm that the player will leave the club at the end of his contract this season.

The Netherlands international is out of contract at Anfield on 30 June and has theoretically been free to speak to other clubs from the beginning of January.

The 30-year-old has been utilised heavily by Reds boss Jurgen Klopp this season – featuring in 46 matches – but it appears his five-year stint at the club is at an end.

Wijnaldum’s agent Humphry Nijman has given an interview in Germany whereby he has reinforced the prospect of the central midfielder moving on as a free transfer this summer, amid rumours that Bayern Munich may be interested in a deal.

The former Newcastle United player has previously been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona, which would reunite him with former Netherlands boss Ronald Koeman.

However, the emergence of young midfielders Pedri and Ilaix Moriba in the first-team squad at the Camp Nou this summer – coupled with the club’s financial problems – may make that deal unfeasible.

Bayern may be emerging as an alternate destination for the player, who could be in high demand across Europe this summer.

Nijman told the SPORT1 podcast Meine Bayern-Woche , in quotes carried by the Liverpool Echo: “Wijnaldum is a free transfer and it keeps all options open.

“FC Bayern is a great club. If you are interested in them, please do not hesitate to talk to us.”

Wijnaldum initially starred in the Dutch Eredivisie with both Feyenoord and PSV Eindhoven before joining Newcastle in 2015.

However, despite netting 11 goals in 40 appearances for the Magpies, his contribution was not enough to save his side from relegation, and he joined Liverpool the following year.

Wijnaldum has scored 22 goals across 232 appearances for the Merseyside giants.
