According to information from Fabrizio Romano, Al-Ettifaq, a club based in Saudi Arabia, has expressed their interest in securing the services of Georgino Wijnaldum, who is currently training with PSG.

It's become evident that PSG has excluded Wijnaldum from their future plans, prompting the Dutch international to undergo training separate from the main squad since the beginning of the preseason.

Steven Gerrard has specifically identified the former Liverpool player as a priority target. If Wijnaldum were to make the move from Paris to Saudi Arabia, he would be reuniting with his former teammate and captain, Jordan Henderson, who himself transferred from Liverpool to the same club earlier in the summer transfer window.

Notably, Moussa Dembele, a former OL player, has also chosen to join the squad under the management of Steven Gerrard this season.

While PSG seems inclined to allow this potential transfer, the ultimate decision rests with the ex-Newcastle midfielder. It's worth noting that Wijnaldum spent the previous season away from Parc des Princes on loan at Roma.

During this period, which was overseen by Jose Mourinho, the 32-year-old made 23 appearances for the Italian side. The Saudi Arabian transfer window remains open for another two weeks, affording ample time for negotiations and completion of a deal.

Will PSG finally get rid of a player who has been a huge disappointment since his one and only year in Paris?
