Liverpool have a battle on their hands to keep Gini Wijnaldum.
The former Newcastle midfielder has become a fan favorite at Anfield. However, this season there have been talks of Wijnaldum leaving for Barcelona.
The Catalan club recently appointed Ronald Koeman as their new head coach who was previously in charge of The Netherlands and has worked closely with Wijnaldum.
He is keen on bringing the midfielder to Camp Nou, according to reports. And although not everyone is convinced a transfer will take place, Paul Robinson has warned the player that these offers come once in a lifetime.
“If you look at where Liverpool are now, Premier League champions, World champions – they are a huge draw for anybody,” he told Football Insider.
“However, when you come up against the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid in the transfer market, or if they want any of your players… Both clubs are a real threat to Liverpool.
“Wijnaldum will have grown up watching the likes of Barca and Real Madrid – two clubs steeped in European history. Are Liverpool as big as Barcelona? I do not think they are.
I think there is a huge draw for Wijnaldum to join Barcelona. That kind of opportunity does not come often and they (Barcelona) do not knock twice.
“If he does have the option to join Barca under Koeman, a manager who he has a relationship with, then he will have a real decision to make.”
