Roma have reportedly reached an agreement with Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum on a season-long loan deal.

The former Liverpool star has been linked with a whole host of clubs this summer after failing to impress since joining the French giants one year ago.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has now claimed that the clubs have agreed a deal, with the matter of paperwork still to be completed before the move is made official.

PSG meanwhile are said to be eyeing up Portuguese midfielder Renato Sanches as his replacement.  

It has been a difficult spell for Wijnaldum, who was lured to the French capital on a free transfer last year after refusing to sign a contract extension at Liverpool.

But 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 made 38 appearances under Mauricio Pochettino last season, though many of those came 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.

He proved a big success at 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.

The 24-year-old has impressed at the Ligue 1 side, making 91 appearances and scoring seven goals in his three years at the club.

Last season, he was limited to 25 league appearances, after he required surgery on a hamstring injury which kept him out for seven weeks towards the start of the campaign.

Before that, he played a huge part in helping Lille pip PSG to the Ligue 1 title in the 2020-21 campaign.
