According to Algemeen Dagblad, new Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman wants to sign Georginio Wijnaldum.

Koeman was confirmed as the new Barcelona coach on Wednesday and has the task of overhauling the club’s squad, with little money available.

According to AD, Koeman wants the club to sign Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum.

The midfielder is seen as a relatively cheap option with Wijnaldum yet to sign a contract extension with Liverpool. It is rumoured that Koeman recently told Wijnaldum not to renew his contract with the Premier League champions.

Wijnaldum was a key player under Koeman with the Dutch national team and the two could be reunited in the Nou Camp. Barcelona would need to sell some players before they can make a move for the 29-year-old.
