PSG attempting to snatch Georginio Wijnaldum from Barcelona.

Paris Saint-Germain are attempting to seize Barcelona’s effort to sign Georginio Wijnaldum on a free transfer, multiple sources have told ESPN.

Wijnaldum, 30, is set to depart Liverpool at the end of the month when his deal lapses at Anfield.

Several Europe’s biggest clubs have shown an engagement in the midfielder, who is planning for the European Chanpionships with the Netherlands.

His agents met with Barca president Joan Laporta twice last week to review a three-year deal at Camp Nou.

Ronald Koeman first fancied to sign Wijnaldum last summer and, after Laporta affirmed the Dutch coach would remain in charge next season, he decisively looked set to land his landsman.

However, sources close to the discussions have told ESPN that PSG have made a much more reasonable financial offer to Wijnaldum, who at this moment is drifting towards a move to Paris.


Sources at Barca, meanwhile, recognize that there is “huge” competition for the player and revealed doubts about completing the singing.

Bayern Munich have also shown an commitment in Wijnaldum.

Barca remain in talks with Wijnaldum’s Dutch teammate Memphis Depay as well. The Lyon forward is also out of agreement at the end of the month and was also targeted by Koeman last season.

Juventus and Inter Milan have also held discussions with Depay.

Barca are set for a busy season. They have already made three signings, with both Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia arriving from Manchester City for free.

The Blaugrana have also stimulated a clause to recall right-back Emerson Royal from Real Betis for €9 million.
