Paris Saint-Germain have announced the signing of Gini Wijnaldum on a free transfer from Liverpool.

The Dutch midfielder will join PSG on a three-year deal when his contract with Liverpool expires at the end of June.

Wijnaldum had been expected to join Barcelona on July 1, with manager Ronald Koeman personally pushing for his signature.

Transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano reported earlier this month that Wijnaldum has decided to go to PSG because the French club had offered him wages worth more than twice what Barca had tabled.

Wijnaldum had agreed a deal in principle with Barca in late May, but changed his mind after PSG came in with a higher offer.

Bayern Munich had also previously expressed an interest in Wijnaldum but did not pursue his signature as aggressively as PSG. Romano reported that PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino has been instrumental in getting the deal over the line and personally called Wijnaldum 'many times' to sell the club's proposition.

Wijnaldum has been a key player for Jurgen Klopp since joining Liverpool from Newcastle for £25million back in 2016.
