Liverpool boss Klopp keen to keep Georginio Wijnaldum at Anfield.

Wijnaldum has been a key part of Liverpool's success over the last three seasons. 

It is believed there are several clubs interested in Wijnaldum's services

Talks about extending Wijnaldum's stay at Anfield has come to a standstill despite Klopp wanting him to stay.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he is eager to keep Netherlands international Georginio Wijnaldum at Anfield.

The German has confirmed Wijnaldum's ongoing contract issue has not affected his relationship with the Dutchman and is convinced the midfielder's future is with the Reds.

Wijnaldum's current deal with the Merseyside club is out of contract next summer, meaning he is obliged to start negotiating with other clubs from January 1.

Just after Ronald Koeman replaced Quique Setien at the Camp Nou helm, the ex-Newcastle star was linked with a move to LaLiga giants Barcelona in the previous transfer window, but nothing materialised and he decided to stay with the Premier League champions.

It is believed there are several clubs interested in Wijnaldum's services and it remains to be seen whether he will put pen on a new deal at Liverpool.

"I cannot really say a lot about that. I would be happy if he would stay here,” Klopp said. “I am pretty happy with Gini as you can see when you look at most of the line-ups.

"He played always good, that's why he's played the amount of games he has. I cannot remember a lot of bad games to be honest. 

"He played for us in plenty of different positions and he is in a good moment thank God. Long may it continue.

"I don't know how many games he's played since I've been here, it's good and there's nothing else to say about it. As long as nothing is decided everything is possible. I am positive."
