Liverpool has a choice to make over the fate of midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum

Liverpool have a choice to make over the fate of midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum

Liverpool boss Michael Edwards has been cautioned he should expand Georginio Wijnaldum's agreement or burn through £60million on a substitution. Wijnaldum's agreement at Liverpool lapses toward the finish of the period and he is allowed to converse with unfamiliar clubs with respect to a free summer move in January. The Dutchman turned 30 in November and Reds bosses are not yet ready to hand a drawn out agreement to a player of that age. 

Wijnaldum has become a critical individual from Jurgen Klopp's side in ongoing seasons and has begun 11 of the 12 Premier League games so far this term. 

Ex-Liverpool left-back Stephen Warnock is a colossal enthusiast of the previous Newcastle midfielder. 

Warnock figures it would cost up to £60m to get a player of Wijnaldum's quality if he somehow managed to leave the club. 

Furthermore, he questions if Liverpool have the assets to make such a marking.

"100% I would [keep him]," Warnock revealed to Stadium Astro. 

"To go into the market and purchase somebody like Gini Wijnaldum you're taking a gander at £50m-£60m. 

"Do Liverpool have the funds to do that after the pandemic? I don't figure they do. 

"They've clearly purchased Thiago into the crew too.

"Yet, one thing you would state is when Liverpool purchased in Naby Keita, purchased in Fabinho, everybody felt that was the finish of Wijnaldum. 

"Wijnaldum's down lifted tremendously, demonstrated his significance, we as a whole recall his key job falling off the seat in the Barcelona game. 

"He was extraordinary in the Champions League last and he is Jurgen Klopp's go-to man in the midfield. 

"He understands what he gets from him, he knows his capacity, he knows his abilities. 

"He plays a tad of an alternate part for Holland and scores bunches of objectives from midfield yet finds a way into Liverpool's framework so well. 

"He will help the more youthful players coming through and have the option to sustain them too. 

"I for one believe it's a choice whether Wijnaldum needs to proceed to put Barcelona on his CV, which is a gigantic task throughout the following four or five years of reconstructing, or whether he believes 'I'm at the age now where I'm coming to 31, Liverpool are in an amazing second, I'm at the club I should be at'."
