PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN are trying to hijack Barcelona’s move for Geroginio Wijnaldum by offering the player TWICE as much, according to reports.
The Dutch midfielder’s Liverpool contract expires at the end of this month and various European clubs are said to be vying for his signature.

According to transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano, Barcelona are waiting for Wijnaldum to make a decision on his future.
Previous reports suggested the 30-year-old would sign for the Spanish giants on a free transfer.
But that move appears to be in doubt as PSG have reportedly offered to double his pay.
Both clubs are believed to be offering Wijnaldum a three-year contract, with the LaLiga team said to be preparing a medical.
The midfielder is understood to prefer a move to Spain and work under Dutch legend and Barca manager Ronald Koeman.
But the Ligue 1 side are allegedly complicating matters by offering him more than €150,000-a-week.

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich are also believed to be monitoring the Holland international.
According to Marca, Wijnaldum told the press earlier this week: “I cannot deny talks [with Barcelona].
“My contract ends and it is an interesting situation for many clubs.”
Wijnaldum enjoyed an excellent six-year stint in the Premier League after leaving PSV for Newcastle United in 2015.
Although the Magpies were relegated in his only season at the club, he’s gone on to win the Prem and Champions League at Anfield.
And the 74-cap international has been included in Frank de Boer’s squad for the Euros.
