Liverpool hero Gini Wijnaldum is apparently open to a move to Tottenham this month despite ‘growing up as an Arsenal supporter’. Wijnaldum signed for Paris Saint-Germain last summer but failed to secure a regular starting spot in the French capital.
Tottenham are keen to bolster their ranks this month as they look to launch an assault on the top four.
Wolves winger Adama Traore is apparently set to move to north London, while Spurs are also reportedly keen on Weston McKennie and Franck Kessie.
Boss Antonio Conte is also keen to send players out of the club, with Dele Alli and Tanguy Ndombele both linked with PSG.
And if either player decides to move to France, there are suggestions that Wijnaldum could move in the opposite direction.
According to 90 minutes, the Dutch international’s representatives have been in contact with Tottenham to inform them that their player is ready to return to England.

Wijnaldum left Liverpool last summer after winning the Champions League in 2019 as well as the Club World Cup and Premier League in 2021.
But it hasn’t worked out for him in France so far and he seems unwilling to bide his time for an opportunity.
Wijnaldum has also been linked with other Premier League clubs. And former Liverpool striker Ian Rush believes the midfielder could join Arsenal or Newcastle.
“He’s an experienced midfielder and he’s become a really valuable player in [Jurgen] Klopp’s team at Liverpool,” Rush said earlier this month.
“I had hoped he would stay at the club beyond last summer. Looking back, it seems like he would have been better off staying at Liverpool.
“But he chose to accept the offer from Paris Saint-Germain. And, as we see all too often, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.
“He doesn’t play regularly in Paris but he would definitely get more playing time at Arsenal. They could use some experience to add to what is already a good but young team.
“They could, however, face competition from Gini’s former club Newcastle who have newfound wealth – and a lot of football decisions come down to money these days.”
