Wijnaldum worked with boss Ronald Koeman on the Netherlands national team and is said to be on the verge of penning a three-year contract at the Catalan giants.
The 30-year-old made 236 appearances for the Merseyside club over the course of five seasons – whom he joined from Newcastle in 2016 – where he scored 22 goals.
