Georginio Wijnaldum has agreed terms with Barcelona over a switch from Liverpool.

The midfielder has just one year left on his contract with negotiations stalling over a new deal.

The Reds risk losing the midfielder for free next summer and have been heavily linked with a move for Bayern Munich midfield maestro Thiago Alcantara this summer.

Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner and Curtis Jones are all vying for spots in the starting line-up as well.

Wijnaldum has won the Premier League, the Champions League, the Fifa World Club Cup and the Uefa Super Cup since his £25m move to Liverpool FC from Newcastle United in 2016.

According to the report by Daily Star, Celtic are of the opinion that Awoniyi would be valued at £9 million despite having never played a game for the Premier League champions.

Both midfielders are now on worldwide duty though, with Wijnaldum with the Holland squad for their Nations League matches against Poland and Italy respectively.

"I thought you were going to say that I can be a pillar of the Dutch national team", Wijnaldum said whilst smiling.

It has been claimed that the 29-year-old has given green light to a move to the Camp Nou and the Catalans are in talks with Liverpool as they look to put him at Koeman's disposal.

Some Barcelona fans have given their take on speculation linking the club with Liverpool midfielder Wijnaldum.
