Georginio Wijnaldum, the Dutch player with a tongue twisting name might not be a house hold name, but due to his stellar performance for now relegated Newcastle United last season, is set to be involved in a transfer tussle between three premier league clubs.
The Netherlands and Newcastle man has been heavily linked with a transfer away from relegated club Newcastle United following their disappointing display in the English premier League last season, with Premier league teams like Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Everton all hoping to capture his signature.
Reports indicate that the Merseyside club Everton have made the 25-year old their priority transfer target this summer window, while North London club Tottenham Hotspur has been tipped as the former PSV man’s preferred next destination.
Latest report from Dean Jones of the Bleacher Report has it that the Netherland star has chosen the White Hart Lane club as his favored destination, should he move away from Newcastle, because they can offer the Dutch man UEFA champions league opportunity next season.
Georginio Wijnaldum has marked Spurs as his No1 destination if he leaves Newcastle. Has a £25m price-tag though – and Toon won’t drop it

It is widely believed that Newcastle United could be forced to cash in on versatile midfielder. He reportedly has a hefty £25m price tag on his head. A asking price Newcastle may have to forcifully lower if the player presses to leave.
If this report is true, it further goes to show how much of a mess Liverpool got themselves in by now beating Sevilla in the Europa league final last season. It would have been a perfect opportunity for the Reds. It also goes to sure the rich clubs will continue to get richer as they will be able to use the lure of Champions League football to attract the best players which will in turn ensure they could to make the most money.
