Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in La Liga on Wednesday, September 23.

Wednesday morning's La Liga transfer talk news roundup:


Georginio Wijnaldum rejects new Liverpool contract amid Barcelona links?

Georginio Wijnaldum has rejected a new contract offer from Liverpool, according to a report.

The 29-year-old's current deal at Anfield expires next summer, meaning that he will be free to open talks with foreign clubs in January as things stand.

Barcelona have been credited with an interest in his signature following Ronald Koeman's arrival as manager, with the pair having worked together for Netherlands.

The Spanish giants have reportedly been banned from signing Wijnaldum this summer, but Football Insider claims that they have received a boost in their hopes of bringing him in on a free transfer in 2021.

The report claims that the Dutch international has rejected the offer of a new long-term contract extension on Merseyside following months of talks between the two parties.

Wijnaldum has seen competition for places in Jurgen Klopp's side increase this summer following the arrival of Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich.

Wijnaldum has made 189 appearances for Liverpool since joining in 2016, playing a key role in the club's Champions League, Premier League and FIFA Club World Cup triumphs over the past two seasons.



Manchester United 'rule out move for Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele'

Manchester United will be making no attempt to sign Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele during the transfer window, according to a report.

With a move for Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho seemingly dead in the water, United have been forced to seek out alternatives to the 20-year-old.

Dembele has been mentioned as a potential signing for the Red Devils, with the France international being tipped to leave Barcelona after struggling with injuries and failing to make his mark in La Liga.

However, the Catalan giants are set to wave goodbye to Luis Suarez, and as a result The Mirror claims that Barca will rebuff any attempts to prise Dembele away from Camp Nou.

The report claims that Ronald Koeman was initially open to selling the £100m-rated Frenchman in order to raise funds for future transfers, but it seems unlikely that any club would be willing to fork out such a sizeable figure in the current economic climate.

Dembele has amassed 19 goals from 74 appearances for La Blaugrana since arriving from Borussia Dortmund, but the 23-year-old only turned out nine times across all competitions in an injury-plagued 2019-20 campaign.

Dembele is contracted to Barcelona until the summer of 2022.
