LIVERPOOL ENGLAND- DECEMBER 04 Gini Wijnaldum of Liverpool celebrates after scoring a goal to make it 5-2 during the Premier League match between Liverpool FC and Everton FC at Anfield

Now, former Liverpool FC star Aldridge has encouraged the Reds to sort out Wijnaldum's situation as soon as possible, with the Merseyside outfit set to kick off their Premier League title defence with a home clash against Leeds United on Saturday.

Wijnaldum's return means he will now have the chance to speak to boss Klopp, given that Barcelona are continuing to pursue him.

It has been reported that Wijnaldum's former worldwide manager Ronald Koeman, who has signed a two-year contract with the Catalans as their new head coach, wants the Dutch midfielder at Nou Camp ahead of the 2020-21 season.

The 29-year old has now entered the final year of his deal and could sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club in January.

Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum will hold talks with manager Jurgen Klopp over his future at Anfield on Wednesday.

With his contract running out though, Liverpool would be expected to be open to letting him move on in the current transfer window if he wants to exit the club.

Wijnaldum missed Liverpool's recent pre-season matches as he was on global duty with the Netherlands side playing in the 2020-21 Nations League.

Wijnaldum has been a key component of a successful Liverpool side but may be allowed to depart in order to avoid losing the player on a free transfer next summer, Jurgen Klopp's side's transfer dealings having been hugely hindered by the pandemic, with a host of fringe players - including Harry Wilson and Marko Grujic - failing to attract previously anticipated offers in the current climate.

However they lost 1-0 to Italy on Friday, as Nicolo Barella found the net in first-half injury time.

Throughout the summer, Liverpool have been linked with Bayern Munich's Thiago Alcantara but we understand they would only look to bring in a midfielder if one left the club. Leeds won the Championship last season and got promoted back to England's top-flight league.
