Report: ‘Sensational’ Everton and West Ham target chooses new club, approves loan move

Roma are interested in Everton and West Ham target Gini Wijnaldum, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

Di Marzio reports that Wijnaldum is the latest player Jose Mourinho wants to bring to the Italian capital, after completing a move for Paulo Dybala.

The report goes on to say that Wijnaldum has already approved a loan move to Roma, but the two clubs have yet to reach an agreement.

This update comes after Fabrizio Romano confirmed that Wijnaldum would be leaving PSG this summer, and 90min suggested that West Ham and Everton were among a number of clubs interested in the Dutch international.

It would be a turn up for the books if Wijnaldum were to make the move to Goodison Park, as the 31-year-old is held in such high regard at city rivals Liverpool.

And given Wijnaldum’s form this season, breaking into the West Ham side ahead of Jarrod Bowen, Pablo Fornals and Said Benrahma would be easier said than done.

Everton and West Ham behind in race for Wijnaldum

Wijnaldum made the decision to leave Liverpool for PSG last season, despite having a contract offer on the table from Jurgen Klopp.

However, the move has not gone to plan for the midfielder, starting less than half of PSG’s league matches, and scoring just a single goal.

The last 12 months have been so bad for Wijnaldum that he’s gone from captaining the Netherlands at last summer’s European Championships, to being dropped from the squad for last month’s Nations League fixtures.

Wherever Wijnaldum ends up next, consistent game time and finding the form that saw Klopp describe him as ‘sensational’ and ‘committed’ has to be the priority.
