Koeman was confirmed as Quiquie Setien’s replacement earlier this week, while the club are also set to appoint a successor to outgoing sporting director Eric Abidal who has been under pressure since a public spat with Lionel Messi earlier this year.

Koeman is already said to have targeted Ajax’s Donny van de Beek and according to AD the 57-year-old has told Liverpool midfielder Wijnaldum not to sign a new contract with the Premier League champions.

 

Wijnaldum has entered the final year of his current deal and is still waiting for negotiations over a new contract to recommence and had been seeking assurances that he would remain a key part of Jurgen Klopp’s plans.
