Newcastle United are reportedly keen on re-signing Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum this summer.

The Magpies have made an offer to try bring the 27-year-old back to St James’ Park and the player is deciding his future amid ongoing talks, according to Turkish outlet Takvim.

Turkish club Fenerbahce are also interested in signing the Netherlands international as competition in the Liverpool first team is set to increase following the big money arrivals of Naby Keita and Fabinho.

Wijnaldum was a big success during his one season with Newcastle a few years back, scoring 11 goals and supplying five assists in 40 appearances, with all of his goals coming at St James' Park.

The central midfield has shown he can offer a serious attacking threat, but is also a combative enforcer that can do the defensive work too.
