Despite offers from the club, the 30-year-old looks destined to leave at the end of the campaign, with Inter Milan or a link up with former Dutch national team coach Ronald Koeman at Barcelona the most likely options.

One thing now seems certain, Wijnaldum will not be a Liverpool player next season.
Albeit not without his detractors, the 73-cap stalwart has been an impressive servant to the Reds since arriving from a relegated Newcastle United.
Having won the Premier League, UEFA Champions League and FIFA Club World Cup, Wijnaldum will perhaps forever be best remembered for that substitute display in the second half against Barcelona.
Rather than focussing on where he may end up, Klopp will no doubt be eyeing a replacement for the ever-available Dutchman.
