Gini Wijnaldum is reportedly set to leave Paris Saint-Germain in January on loan – and Wolves ought to get involved.
The midfielder only joined the French giants in the summer, after it had looked as though he was going to join Barcelona.
But things haven’t really worked out so far for the 85-cap Netherlands international.
He has been unable to establish himself in Mauricio Pochettino’s starting XI, with the Argentine preferring the likes of Leandro Paredes, Marco Verratti, Idrissa Gueye and Ander Herrera.
He has been linked with his former club Newcastle United and Arsenal so far, but maybe Wolves should be looking to join the hunt.
Bruno Lage has just three senior midfield options at the moment. That just isn’t enough going forwards.
Wijnaldum has not become a bad player overnight. There is a lot of competition at PSG, so standing out can be tricky even for top players.
Wijnaldum was absolutely superb during his time at Liverpool, and left Anfield a Champions League and Premier League winner.
If there’s any chance he’s available, Wolves should be all over it.
Wolves need to sign Gini Wijnaldum
Wolves signing Gini Wijnaldum would be an extremely positive move from Fosun.
The star obviously has bags of Premier League experience, and is versatile. He has shown with the role he plays for the Netherlands that he can be a goalscoring midfielder. But he can also hold, making him very valuable.
It hasn’t worked out for him at PSG, but he could be a real hit at Molineux.
If Fosun want to prove their ambition, they’d start making enquiries about Wijnaldum now.
Interestingly, Wolves were actually linked with the player this time last year with the Mirror citing reports from Italy.
So there is a suggestion he has been on Wolves officials’ radar before.
Simply put, Wolves signing Wijnaldum next month would be an amazing move that would also hand Lage another leader in the dressing room.
Wages could potentially be a stumbling block. But we are talking about a proven Premier League performer. Surely it is worth a look at.
