PSV Eindhoven have not been approached by Liverpool for midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum and will strive to hold on to their captain as the summer transfer window approaches.

A number of Premier League sides have been linked with Wijnaldum, 24, who is keen to take on a fresh challenge having just led PSV to their first Eredivisie title in seven years.

While the Netherlands international is happy at the Philips Stadion, he admitted it would be difficult to turn down a move to a club in England, Italy, Spain or Germany in the coming months.

Liverpool have been credited with interest in the midfielder, but having just seen the club's prized asset Memphis Depay sign for Manchester United, PSV technical director Marcel Brands insists there has been no approach yet from the Merseyside club.

"We have not had any contact with Liverpool about Wijnaldum," Brands told Sky Sports. "We hope to keep the rest of the team together now because we are playing in the Champions League next season. I hope we don't have to sell any other players."

Like Depay, Wijnaldum signed a new contract at PSV at the beginning of the season but it is unlikely to prevent him leaving the club should the right offer come in.

While it remains to be seen whether Liverpool have a formal interest, the Netherlands international is open to the idea of a move to their arch-rivals United and a reunion with his former national team boss, Louis van Gaal.

"Of course I would like to work with him again," Wijnaldum said. "He is a good trainer and makes players better. I work really fine with him and he is a great man. He gave me a chance and opportunity to play in a World Cup after seven months out injured, and I am thankful for that. He helped me get my confidence back."
