Since signing for Liverpool in Jürgen Klopp's first summer transfer window, Georginio Wijnaldum has become emblematic of the German's footballing philosophy.

He was moulding a Dutch international and Eredivisie winner, and an established Premier League goalscorer.

The club will undoubtedly now be on the lookout for the next Gini Wijnaldum — a search which we know from the past could take them to the unlikeliest of places.

Over the course of five years, the former Newcastle United man has been a central figure in a transformation that has seen the club triumph in both the Premier League and the Champions League.

Wijnaldum quickly dispelled these myths once he pulled on the Liverpool shirt, but the recruitment team had already cut through the fictions prior to green-lighting the transfer.

He also outperformed his expected goals (xG) and expected assists (xA) metrics for the campaign, managing 11 goals and five assists against an expected return of 7.93 and 3.82 respectively.

Similarly, even despite an extremely prolific 2015/16 campaign, an agenda surrounding his lack of away goals persisted.
