Wijnaldum ‘wants to play for Arsenal’ and could seal loan transfer from PSG just seven months after leaving Liverpool

GEORGINIO WIJNALDUM would like to play for Arsenal, according to reports.

The midfielder left Liverpool last summer to join Paris Saint-Germain after a successful five-year stint at Anfield.

Georginio Wijnaldum hasn’t enjoyed a sparkling spell at PSG

Things haven’t gone so well for the Dutchman in France, however, having only started 11 Ligue 1 matches this term.

Wijnaldum, 31, isn’t currently up for sale – despite his below-pat start to life at Parc des Princes.

But should PSG be able to sign Tanguy Ndombele or Dele Alli on loan from Tottenham Hotspur, his situation may change.

Reporter Kaveh Solhekol told Sky Sports News: “The situation is Gini Wijnaldum is out injured at the moment.

“He’s not going to come out in public and say, ‘I want to leave PSG’, because you wouldn’t want to spoil your relationship with the fans.

“But what we’re being told is he would like to return to the Premier League.

“I’m not saying he wants to return today, this week or even in the summer, but he would like to return and we keep being told he would like to play for Arsenal.

“They’re a club he admired a lot when he was growing up. It’s definitely something that appeals to him.

“If PSG were to sign Ndombele on loan, would they let one of their midfielders go? Would Wijnaldum then become an option for Arsenal?

“We know Arsenal are looking for a midfielder. PSG have consistently said, ‘we don’t want him to leave’.”

Arsenal have been linked with a number of midfielders as they look to bolster their options around Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka.

Juventus ace Arthur Melo has been strongly touted.

But Wijnaldum could potentially come into play later in the window.

The reliable star made 237 appearances for Liverpool after joining from Newcastle in 2016.

He has since made 25 for PSG, but has suffered from knee injuries this term.
