LIVERPOOL have placed four players on their end-of-season released list – but Georginio Wijnaldum is not one of them.
The 30-year-old is out of contract at Anfield and is widely expected to leave the club, with Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain believed to be interested.

Liverpool have given free transfers to just four reserves: Liam Coyle, Joseph Hardy, Abdi Sharif and Jack Walls.
But many were expecting Wijnaldum's name to be on that list as his contract is due to expire at the end of this month.
The Holland international has been linked with Barca and PSG, with the Ligue 1 club reportedly willing to DOUBLE his salary.
And according to journalist Fabrizio Romano, Wijnaldum is close to agreeing a move to the French capital.
Rumours suggest he will sign a three-year deal at PSG after receiving several calls from manager Mauricio Pochettino in the last few days.
The reported transfer could even be completed before Holland's Euro 2020 campaign begins against Ukraine on Sunday, June 13.

The ex-Newcastle midfielder has also said an emotional goodbye to Liverpool fans, telling them: "The people in Liverpool have shown me love during the five years. I will miss them.
"I hope to have played many more years for the club but unfortunately things went different. I have to start a new adventure."
But his shock exclusion from the free transfer list suggests his Anfield story may not be over just yet.
All four players – plus Wijnaldum – can still be retained by Liverpool if the club decides to offer them a new deal.
The 74-cap international has been crucial to the Reds' success this season, playing in every Premier League game to help them finish third.
