New Liverpool signing Georginio Wijnaldum heads to California after completing his move
Georginio Wijnaldum landed in California on Saturday as the new Liverpool signing linked up with Jurgen Klopp’s squad.
The Netherlands international completed a much-touted switch to the Merseyside outfit on Friday after the Reds agreed a deal with Championship side Newcastle United.
Wijnaldum is Klopp’s seventh new signing of the summer, following in the footsteps of Loris Karius, Sadio Mane, Joel Matip, Marko Grujic, Ragnar Klavan and Alex Manninger.
Liverpool have already won four successive pre-season friendlies without conceding a goal after wins against Fleetwood Town, Tranmere Rovers, Wigan Athletic and Huddersfield Town.
Now, Wijnaldum will be tested with helping Klopp’s side secure wins against Chelsea and AC Milan in their International Champions Cup fixtures in California this week.
Liverpool’s official Snapchat account (@LFC) posted the above photo of their new signing landing in California to link up with his new team-mates on Saturday afternoon.
The 18-time English champions finished in eighth place in the Premier League table last season after a mixed initial seven months under Klopp.
Liverpool lost cup finals to Manchester City and Sevilla.
