Georginio Wijnaldum has chosen Paris Saint Germain his next destination after leaving Liverpool this summer.
The Dutch midfielder was earlier linked with a move to Barcelona but the French League giants beat them to his signature after offering him an improved deal.
Wijnaldum will undergo his medical at the Paris-based club and then kick start his reign with his new club on July 1.
The Netherlands international was said to have been offered a deal he could not reject before dumping his initial move to the Camp Nou despite scheduling his medical with them already.
Meanwhile, the Parisians are still interested in signing Moise Kean on a permanent deal from Everton having scored 13 goals in 26 Ligue 1 games while on loan with them last campaign.
The Toffees on the other hand will not make any decision on the forward’s future until they have appointed a new manager who will take over from Carlo Ancelotti as reported by the publication.
However, Barcelona have stepped up their bid with an improved deal for Memphis Depay after missing out on Wijnaldum’s move.
The former Manchester United forward will become a free agent once his deal with Lyon elapses this month. He is expected to join the likes of Sergio Aguero, Eric Garcia, and Emerson Royal at Camp Nou.
