Liverpool are now in serious danger of losing Georginio Wijnaldum on a free in the summer as the Dutchman has rejected their new contract offer, according to Todofichajes.

The report claims that 30-year-old is now set on moving to Barcelona in the summer. Ronald Koeman is an admirer of Wijnaldum and the Cules have been monitoring his contract situation at Liverpool for a while now.

Liverpool are keen to keep Wijnaldum but the player has reportedly already decided to call it a day on his time at Anfield and move on since the latest contract offer was not to his satisfaction.

Mark Schoots who represents Christian Eriksen has, according to reports in Italy, offered the Dane to Barcelona and Real Madrid to end his terrible spell at Inter Milan under Antonio Conte.

Zinedine Zidane does not use no. 10s and prefers deep-lying playmakers like Toni Kroos and Luka Modric but nevertheless, Real Madrid are willing to sign him if Eriksen is available on loan.

Eriksen is evidently not a part of Antonio Conte's plans at Inter Milan and the manager wouldn't mind parting ways with him. The club will also be happy to clear some deadwood and get him off their payroll.
