Newcastle United have made a move to take Georginio Wijnaldum back.
The Dutch international left St James’ Park two years ago to move to Liverpool when they suffered relegation from the Premier League down to the Championship at the end of the 2015/16.
Ex-Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez steered them straight back up to the top flight and they have since stabilised and are reportedly looking to re-sign the Holland midfielder, according to Takvim.
Turkish club Fenerbahce are said to be closely monitoring his future and manager Philip Cocu is said to be hopeful of reuniting with his former colleague if a deal can be done.
But a move to Newcastle could prove more alluring, and also profitable, to the twenty-seven year old should he decide that he is too far down the pecking order at Anfield.
Juventus completing a deal to sign Emre Can has helped his cause as he seeks to become a regular in Jurgen Klopp’s midfield next season – but the arrivals of Naby Keita and Fabinho are likely to prove stumbling blocks.
The continuing presence of skipper Jordan Henderson and his vice-captain James Milner coupled with the return to fitness of Adam Lallana will also seen the competition for places intensify.
Former Arsenal and Southampton midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will also return to action at some point during the campaign and that would only add another obstacle for Wijnaldum.
So a return to the Magpies could prove a good idea for him as he considers his future.
