The Newcastle United star was one of the club’s better performers last season, notching up eleven goals and five assists from midfield, but couldn’t prevent their relegation to the Championship.
It always seemed unlikely the Dutch international would spend next season in English football’s second tier and a number of top flight clubs have been tipped to swoop in recent weeks.
But rumours of a move to Merseyside emerged earlier this week and it was revealed this morning that the Reds have agreed a £25million transfer fee with the Magpies.
According to Sky Sports News, the 25-year-old is now undergoing a medical at Anfield and we at Football FanCast expect him to pass.
Wijndaldum will become Jurgen Klopp’s fifth signing of the summer, following deals for Loris Karius, Joel Matip, Sadio Mane and recent addition Ragnar Klavan.
