Roma are in talks to sign former Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum from French giants Paris St Germain this summer.
The former Liverpool ace has been linked with a whole string of Premier League clubs after he was left out of the Parasians’ pre-season squad for their tour of Japan earlier this month, with Everton, Leicester and West Ham linked with his signature.
Jose Mourinho’s side, however, are now closing in on signing the Holland international on an £8million loan-to-buy agreement.

It has been a difficult spell for the 31-year-old, who was lured to the French capital on a free transfer last year after refusing to sign a contract extension at Liverpool.
Although he now looks set to depart the French side after just one season that saw him voted the ‘Ligue 1 flop of the season’.
The box-to-box midfielder struggled for minutes under former PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino, making just 38 appearances with most of those seeing Wijanldum introduced from the bench.
The Holland international won the Premier League, Club World Cup, and Champions League during his five-year stay at Anfield after signing for £25million from Newcastle United in 2016.

Wijnaldum was a regular for the Reds, featuring in 179 of the club’s 190 Premier League matches between the 2016/17 and 2020/21 seasons.
He made 237 appearances in all competitions and netted 22 goals during his time at Anfield prior to his exit.
The midfielder will join Nemanja Matic and Paulo Dybala as new signings for the Giallorossi this summer, as Mourinho continues to bolster his squad ahead of the new season.
