“He will add goals” “Exciting times” – Liverpool fans react to Gini Wijnaldum signing

With Liverpool securing the signing of Gini Wijnaldum from Newcastle on Friday evening, Reds supporters gave their thoughts on the Dutchman’s arrival.

The 25-year-old has completed a five-year contract worth £25 million, becoming Jurgen Klopp‘s seventh permanent signing as Liverpool manager in the process.

Paul Joyce of the Express claims the deal went through after Klopp personally spoke to former Reds boss Rafa Benitez about the move.

Wijnaldum will become the seventh Dutch player to represent the club, joining Dirk Kuyt, Ryan Babel and more on the list, and will now fly to the United States to meet up with his new teammates.

The midfielder scored 11 goals in 38 Premier League appearances for Newcastle last season, including four in one game against Norwich in October.

Here is how Liverpool fans reacted to the signing of Wijnaldum on social media:






Zinedine Biscan on the forum:

A little bit underwhelming for me. Sure, seemed like a good player for Newcastle at points in the season but not one to get the pulse racing either.


AYBGerrardo on the forum:

Because what we really need is another attacking midfielder
