It’s a done deal then! Liverpool have signed Georginio Wijnaldum from Newcastle… if you believe his brother, Giordon.
The Reds are believed to be one the verge of snapping up the 25-year-old from the relegated Magpies, with reports only this morning having revealed that a £25m fee had been agreed between the two clubs after a pretty intense few days of negotiations and speculation.
Although Wijnaldum hasn’t made the official ‘Melwood Lean’, it seems that it’s now a matter or ‘when’ rather than ‘if’, with the player’s brother having put a not too subtle image on Twitter.
The message “soon” is hardly cryptic, and although the image could be a work of Photoshop mischief, it’s hard to see this not becoming a reality.
The graphic includes the hashtag ‘#WelcomeGeorginio”, which is now sure to be all over social media!
Is he worth the effort Liverpool have gone to? His stats are pretty impressive…
