Ronald Koeman explains why Barcelona couldn’t sign Gini Wijnaldum from Liverpool

Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman has confirmed he wanted to sign Gini Wijnaldum from Liverpool this summer but the Spanish club have been unable to fund a deal.

In an interview with Dutch office Algemeen Dagblad about Football Oranje, Koeman explained why he is interested in the Reds midfielder, who could be available for free next summer if he does not sign a new contract with Anfield.

Koeman said: “Gini has a great sense of space, he can get to goal fantastic from midfield, he could really add something to the team.”

“But the club was aware of the financial situation. His position ultimately had less priority than, for example, the position of right-back or striker. ”

Barcelona sign Ajax right-back Sergino Dest, Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic and Braga winger Trincao.

They also wanted to sign Lyon striker Memphis Depay but again, due to their financial situation, this was again impossible.

Koeman confirmed that he will try again to sign Memphis in January, adding, “That is certainly a possibility, yes. I’ll try because I want him.

“But now I cannot estimate what the club’s financial situation will be like in January.

[Rodgers]and from players like Stevie [Gerrard]. „

The international break is almost over and Premier League football is back with a bang.

Liverpool travel to Everton for the first Merseyside derby of the season on Saturday.
