According to Sky Sports, Georginio Wijnaldum is dissatisfied with his status at the Princes' Park and is considering returning to the Premier League. Paris Saint-Germain would allegedly keep him, but in case he changes the record, the Dutchman could strengthen the ranks of Arsenal in January.
He arrived at PSG last summer as a free agent, after six years spent in English football (five in Liverpool). It thus became part of the historic transfer period in the French capital, as did Lionel Messi, Sergio Ramos, and Gianluigi Donnarumma They are still waiting for Sergio Ramos due to injury, Messi is indispensable in the first team, Donnarumma is taking more and more space of Kaylor Navas, while Wijnaldum has made 20 appearances in the Saints jersey, but only 10 times in the starting 11.
The competition for a place in the midfield is quite strong, so the former player of PSV, Newcastle, and Liverpool has to fight for minutes with Marco Veratti, Danilo Pereira, Leandro Paredes, Ander Herrera, and Idrisa Gueye.
Wijnaldum on the situation
"I can't say that I am completely happy, because the situation is not what I hoped for. But it is football and I will have to learn to deal with it. I am a fighter." "I have to stay positive and work hard to turn the situation around.
I played a lot in the previous years, I've always been fit and played well." "It's different now and I have to get used to it. I was looking forward to a new step, and then this happened. It's very difficult," Wijnaldum told Dutch media in October.
Arsenal is emerging as a potential destination. Michel Arteta's company started the season disastrously, and then magically rose. However, they fell into a bad rhythm again, so they only celebrated once in the last four games.
In the central part of the midfield, the Spaniard relies on Thomas Partey and Albert Sambi Lokonga, while there are fewer and fewer places for Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny, and the impression is that they are closer to leaving the club than staying and a more serious role.
That is why Wijnaldum would be an ideal reinforcement, together with Arteta and the Partey he could shape the talented Lokonga, but even in the competition plan, a player with such experience would be of great importance for the team.
However, PSG also has their plans and we will see if they will still have confidence in Wijnaldum and if he will stay
