Gini Wijnaldum returns to Italy, will be evaluated for Portugal tour

Andy Mattioli

Good news for Jose Mourinho who will soon be able to rely on one of Roma’s top summer signings in Georginio Wijnaldum.

The Dutchman continues to recover from a fracture he suffered in training on 22 August which sidelined him for nearly five months.

The ex-Liverpool man is expected to return from his fractured tibia injury sometime within the next 3-4 weeks.

As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Wijnaldum touched down in Italy earlier today after spending the past few weeks in Holland and Dubai training individually.

The player will undergo a medical visit at Trigoria to determine his status for Roma’s upcoming trip to Portugal and finalise his return to the pitch in mid-January.
