Wijnaldum ready to extend Roma stay

Andy Mattioli

Dutch midfielder Gini Wijnaldum is ready to extend his stay in the Italian capital beyond this season.

Following an impressive performance against Sampdoria – which saw the ex-Liverpool man score his second Serie A goal of the season and win a penalty in Roma’s favor – Wijnaldum is reportedly open to the idea of staying in Italy.

According to Il Messaggero, if Jose Mourinho were to remain at Roma, Wijnaldum’s stay would almost be guaranteed as the Special One strongly believes in what was one of the club’s top signings of last summer before a leg injury sidelined him for the opening five months of the season.

The Italian newspaper reports that Roma are at work to lower PSG’s asking price for Wijnaldum. The player himself has already expressed interest in staying and would be willing to take a pay cut to facilitate negotiations between the two sides.
