However, his contract expires in the summer, allowing Wijnaldum to move freely around Europe, and after looking set for Barcelona just a week ago, he has joined Mauricio Pochettino’s PSG side.
PSG reportedly hijacked the deal after the French side offered to double the wages that Barcelona were offering the Dutchman.
Wijnaldum joined Liverpool in 2015, after a successful season with Newcastle, and he went onto make 236 appearances for the red half of Liverpool.
However, the two parties reached a stumbling block in negotiations over a new contract, with Liverpool unwilling to meet the 30-year-old’s demands.
It’s understood that PSG tabled a huge offer, and a personal phone call from Pochettino was enough to seal the deal that will see Wijnaldum link up with players such as Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
He has penned a three-year deal with the French giants.
