As Manchester United continue to chase Paul Pogba, archrivals Liverpool completed their seventh signing of the summer in the form of Georginio Wijnaldum.

The Dutch strike moved from Newcastle United to Anfield for £25m as part of a five-year deal.

Wijnaldum joined the Magpies for £14.5m from Dutch side PSV in last season. He managed to find the back of the net on 11 occasions in 38 outings.

The 25-year-old will join Jurgen Klopp’s on the pre-season tour of America, where they will play Chelsea (27 July), AC Milan (30 July) and Roma (1 August).

Wijnaldum has 30 appearances for the national team under his belt.

The Reds ended their last campaign in 8th position. Since they lost in the Europa League final, Liverpool will not be part of European football this term.

Liverpool will begin their 2016-17 Premier League on August 14 against Arsenal.
