Wolves transfer news: PSG to loan out Gini Wijnaldum

PSG will reportedly be loaning out Gini Wijnaldum this summer, with Wolves having been linked with the player recently.

According to reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano, it is ‘confirmed’ that the French giants will offload the Netherlands international.

The club is now working to find him a suitor for the 2022/23 season.

They want him gone as soon as possible.

PSG have already signed former Wanderers loanee Vitinha this summer. And they have also been linked with a move for Renato Sanches.

It is clear Wijnaldum would struggle for minutes at the Parc des Princes if he stayed put.

So he will be leaving, and now it is just a case of where he ends up. Jose Mouirnho’s AS Roma are thought to be ‘very keen’.

Last month, Wolves were linked with Wijnaldum. The club were reported to be keeping tabs on the player’s situation.

West Ham United and Everton were also named as potential suitors.

It remains to be seen if Wolves will look to try and bring the star back to the Premier League.

Currently, Wanderers are lacking depth in midfield. Bruno Lage has Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho and Leander Dendoncker, as well as youngster Luke Cundle. Morgan Gibbs-White could also play central were he to stay at the club.

And it’s possible Connor Ronan could yet become a part of the squad for 2022/23.

Wolves should see if Gini Wijnaldum fancies Molineux move

So it looks as though Wijnaldum will indeed be playing for a different team in 2022/23.

His move to the Parc des Princes just hasn’t worked out. But that should not deter Wolves.

Surely signing Wijnaldum on a loan deal is worth considering, if he would be open to a move. A sticking point could well be his reported £160,000-a-week wages, but perhaps Wolves could see if PSG would agree to pay a portion.

He was superb during his time at Liverpool and obviously has lots of experience. He can play a number of different midfield roles and as we know, Lage loves versatility in players.

The 31-year-old, whom Jurgen Klopp described as one of the smartest players he’s ever coached, is also a leader.

Wolves have already lost a few of those this summer, so he’d also be great for the dressing room.
