Gini Wijnaldum’s footballing future remains uncertain, and there’s still a slim chance he could re-sign with Liverpool, but the assumption at this stage is that the veteran Dutch midfielder will be moving on in the summer when his contract expires.

That means the Reds will be on the lookout for a replacement, or at least that’s the long-standing assumption of the rumour mongers, and today they’ve gone and added another name to the list of players the club could target to will Wijnaldum’s role.

The new name to track is Teun Koopmeiners, AZ Alkmaar’s 23-year-old captain, a left footer who has made 141 appearances for the Eredivisie side, primarily as a holding midfielder. He also has filled in at times at centre half and has one senior Dutch cap.
