Inter Milan have inched closer to signing Barcelona and PSG target and are confident of bringing the player to San Siro this summer.
Liverpool are on the verge of losing Georginio Wijnaldum as the midfielder has not yet committed to a new deal with the club. With his contract set to expire in June, the Dutchman will be ending his five-year association with the team. Barcelona, Inter Milan and Paris Saint-Germain are among those who are looking to sign him as a free agent.
However, things might may not pan out as planned for the Blaugrana and the Parisiens as the Nerazzurri have expedited their pursuit of Wijnaldum, according to Todo Fichajes have reportedly agreed on terms with the Dutch international.
This proposed agreement may well come down as a big blow to the likes of Barcelona and PSG who were keen on adding the midfielder to their respective sides after the end of this season. In the ongoing season, the central midfielder has made 26 appearances in the league campaign and has scored twice.
The Nerazzurri are hoping to rejuvenate their midfield for the next season as the team has lacked stability in the centre of the park this term. After facing an early exit from the Champions League, the Serie A side missed out on another possible silverware opportunity as they were knocked out by Juventus in the semifinals of the Coppa Italia.
Though Antonio Conte‘s side leads the Italian top-flight, it’s success is largely down to the absence from European competitions.
The arrival of Wijnaldum will not only bring in solidarity at the centre of the park but will also look to provide more stability in the attacking half. Antonio Conte will be more than happy to slot the midfielder in his starting lineup and look to fill in the loopholes which persist in his current setup.
As we get closer to the summer transfer window, there will be more updates on this proposed transfer deal. Inter Milan are likely to win the race for the services of Liverpool man and could announce his arrival on a pre-contract even before the ongoing campaign ends.
