Liverpool are working on extending midfielder Gini Wijnaldum’s contract, which expires next year, as they also weigh up potentially bidding for Bayern Munich’s Thiago.
The Reds won their first Premier League in history earlier this season and finally lifted the trophy on Wednesday evening.
Wijnaldum was part of the celebrations and scored in the game against Chelsea on the same night.
The Dutchman has made 36 appearances in the league for Liverpool this season and has been brilliant in midfield.

The Reds, however, have been linked with Bayern’s midfield maestro Thiago.
Some think that a potential transfer to Liverpool for the Spaniard could spell the end for Wijnaldum at Liverpool.
But according to Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, that’s isn’t the case.

He says that Liverpool are working hard trying to renew Wijnaldum’s deal with the club.
An agreement has yet to be found, bit it’s likely both parties will decide to extend his contract.
Romano also says that Liverpool still aren’t anywhere near signing Thiago, because they haven’t even bid for him yet.
Wijnaldum’s midfield partner Jordan Henderson was announced as the FWA Football of the Year on Friday morning, prompting a candid response from manager Jurgen Klopp.

“He would have been my choice as well.
“My team has exceptional performers but has has the package of leadership and consistency across the whole year.”
