Barcelona have offered a three-year deal to Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum whose contract expires at the end of June, Italian journalist Nicolo Schira has claimed.
Wijnaldum has been with the Reds for the past five years, and he has been a quality performer, registering 22 goals and 16 assists from 226 appearances.
However, the Dutchman could be on the move in the next few months with no resolution over his Reds contract, which will conclude shortly after the end of the season.
In a recent update provided by Schira, the Netherlands international has yet to agree a new deal with the Merseyside outfit.
He added that the Blaugrana are working towards signing the 30-year-old midfielder and have offered him a three-year contract worth €8 million per year.
Inter Milan have also expressed an interest in the former Newcastle United man, but there has only been initial contact, and they have not made a contract proposal.

Wijnaldum’s future has been a regular topic of speculation in recent months and as time goes by, it appears likely that he could leave the Reds on a free transfer.
It has been previously reported that the Blaugrana are Wijnaldum’s ‘dream club‘, and he would be tempted by a move to Camp Nou.
Wijnaldum would have the chance to play alongside compatriot Frenkie de Jong while being managed by former Netherlands head coach Ronald Koeman.
As things stand, it appears that his future may lie away from Anfield, but the Reds will still be hopeful of convincing him to sign a renewal.
