Georginio Wijnaldum is ready to return to the Premier League on loan in January, if PSG approve a temporary deal.
The former Liverpool midfielder struggled to make the impact he wanted in the French capital after joining as a free agent.
And he publicly admitted he was unhappy, telling Dutch outlet NOS: “I can’t say I’m completely happy, because the situation is not what I wanted.”

“But that’s football and I’m going to have to learn how to deal with that.” I am a fighter. I have to stay positive and work hard to fix it.
“I’ve played a lot in the last few years, I’ve always been in good shape and I’ve also done very well. It’s something different and you have to get used to it.
“I was really looking forward to the next stage and then it happens. It’s very difficult.’
As things stand, PSG appear unwilling to let Wijnaldum leave next month, although they are open to a decision, according to Sky Sports.
The midfielder’s playing time has been inconsistent since joining PSG in the summer
Arsenal are seen as one of the clubs with an interest in the midfielder.
Wijnaldum has been a vital player for Liverpool in recent years and Jurgen Klopp wanted to keep the 31-year-old last summer.
His move to new pastures has so far failed to pay off and given his vocal dissatisfaction with life under Mauricio Pochettino, he is set to return to the Premier League in a bid to earn more game time.
Wijnaldum is in competition with Marco Verratti, Danilo Pereira, Ander Herrera, Idrissa Gueye and Leandro Paredes for a place in the PSG first team.
He remains a key player for the Dutch national team and was one of the most notable stars of the Euros.
