Bayern Munich and Barcelona are in advanced talks on a free transfer for Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum, according to Sky Sport Germany.
The future of the Dutchman has been a source of discussion for the past year, and it was confirmed on Sunday that he will depart Liverpool when his contract expires next month.
The Blaugrana had previously stated that they had a verbal agreement with the player and were optimistic in landing his signature on a Bosman contract.
Former Netherlands head coach Ronald Koeman's presence had been touted as the key draw for the 30-year-old.
After the Catalan giants missed out on the La Liga title due to a disappointing finish to the season, it is no longer guaranteed that Koeman will stay at the helm.
With Koeman's future in doubt, this may affect Wijnaldum's decision on his next chapter.
