However, according to The Telegraph it is Liverpool who are frontrunners to sign the Dutch international and they are hoping to strike a deal this week as coach Jurgen Klopp hopes to strengthen his attacking options.

Newcastle United signed the midfielder from PSV last summer for £14.5 million and are determined not to let their top scorer leave on the cheap. They have slapped a £27 million price tag on the 25-year-old, but Liverpool are hoping to negotiate a deal closer to £20 million. They hope to wrap up a deal quickly so Wijnaldum can join Liverpool on their trip to America, which begins on Thursday.
