Georginio Wijnaldum will be picked as part of Liverpool’s squad to face Leeds United on Saturday, Sky claim.

Wijnaldum’s future at Liverpool has been heavily speculated about in recent weeks, with Barcelona thought to be potential buyers.

Ronald Koeman is keen to bring the Liverpool man to the Nou Camp, but his efforts have been blocked so far.

Jurgen Klopp has now held talks with the 29-year-old, and intends to put him in Liverpool’s squad at the weekend.

Sky does not say whether Wijnaldum will be a starter against newly promoted Leeds, but he will be at Anfield.

Wijnaldum is actually believed to be keen to stay and it seems that Klopp has been convinced the distractions around his future won’t impact on his performance.

Wijnaldum’s availability should be a boost to Liverpool, as he has played a key role under Klopp, covering multiple roles in their midfield.

Klopp rates the midfielder highly and labelled him ‘perfect’ on Liverpool’s official website earlier this season.

And it now will be interesting to see whether Liverpool do offer Wijnaldum the new contract he seemingly desires, with the Dutchman having just one year left on his current deal.
