Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum is left with just a year on his contract at Anfield and Liverpool is planning to extend his contract, according to Guardian journalist and Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
The Netherlands international is the only key player yet to sign a lucrative, long-term deal.
In 36 Premier League games, Wijnaldum featured this term weighing in with four goals, and his ability to link defense to attack was critical to the successful campaign of the Reds.
The 29-year-old joined Liverpool in the summer of 2016 on a £23 million five-year deal, coming from Newcastle United and made 185 appearances across all competitions, scoring 19 games and playing a major role in the recent rise of the side to the top.
Both parties were unable to reach an agreement, but it is expected that one will continue as Liverpool will not be able to afford to lose it free next summer.
Wijnaldum remains a key cog in the Reds midfield and, given the quality of service he has rendered over the years, he definitely merits a pay increase.
