Pushed out by Paris Saint-Germain, Georginio Wijnaldum is getting a little closer to arriving at AS Roma. The Dutch midfielder will join the club from the Italian capital on a loan with an option to buy.

Paris Saint-Germain will part ways with Georginio Wijnaldum. More desired by the new coach Christophe Galtier, the Dutch midfielder is preparing to join AS Roma. This Thursday, shortly before 6 p.m., the 31-year-old player arrived in the Italian city, as reported by Sky Italia. Brought to pass the medical examination on Friday, the former member of the Liverpool workforce will sign with the Louve coached by José Mourinho in the form of a loan with an option to buy.

38 games in 2021-2022

In detail, as reported by journalist Nicolo Schira, the two parties have agreed on a loan including an option to buy 8 million euros, set to become mandatory if the native of Rotterdam plays 50% of the matches of the Roma and if the Italian club qualifies for the 2022-2023 edition of the Champions League. Once the purchase option has been exercised, Georginio Wijnaldum will sign a contract until June 2025. Finally, Paris Saint-Germain will pay 40% of the player’s salary this season.

Recruited by Paris Saint-Germain during the summer of 2021, the former Liverpool resident played 38 games in all competitions during the 2021-2022 season, for 3 goals. Established sparingly by Argentinian Mauricio Pochettino, Georginio Wijnaldum did not fit into the plans of the former Nice coach. Placed on a list of undesirables along with Julian Draxler, Ander Herrera, Layvin Kurzawa and Rafinha, the player with 86 caps and 26 goals with the Oranje will try to revive on the other side of the Alps with the Roman formation, sixth of the last season of Serie A and winner of the first edition of the Europa League Conference.
