Liverpool fans react to Wijnaldum exit comments

Loads of Liverpool fans have been reacting to the latest transfer update, after Georginio Wijnaldum quashed rumours that he might leave the club.

Liverpool have made two world class midfield signings this summer, but the improvement of Wijnaldum over the last 12 months seems to have gone under the radar.

The 27 year-old still needs to add more goals to his game, but his ability to play in any of the three midfield positions is a huge boost for Jürgen Klopp, and the Dutch midfielder has laughed off the exit links.

“That was the speculation of the media. I laugh about it,” he smiled when asked about the links to Fenerbahce.

“I also read that I asked the club if I could leave. I never had a conversation with the club.

“People from the outside just see Liverpool is buying players, so (they think) players who are already here are going to leave.”

The Reds have of course added some serious quality to that midfield area, but the combination of athleticism, skill and versatility with the duo of Wijnaldum and Naby Keita is really quite something.

After a couple of inconsistent seasons littered with occasional moments of brilliance, fans are hoping this will be a big year for the 5ft 9in ace, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions to his transfer comments down below…
