Gini Wijnaldum played nearly 5,000 minutes for Liverpool last season. That number is 1,500 minutes, or 17 full games, more than the next most played midfielder at the club.

Replacing those minutes now that he’s gone will be hard, especially with players like Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara, Naby Keïta, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain carrying significant injury question marks.

It’s no surprise, then, the Reds have been linked with a number of potential replacements already this summer, with one of the most intriguing Brighton 24-year-old Yves Bissouma.
