It seems that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is ready to revamp the club’s midfield department for the next season.
At the moment, stars like Emre Can, Joe Allen, Lucas Leiva and captain Jordan Henderson are the senior players in the midfield. Moreover, even James Milner can effectively play in that position.
Other than that, the Merseysiders have already secured the signing of young Serbian midfielder Marko Grujic last winter. He will arrive at Anfield this summer.
Now, reports (Przeglad Sportowy via Canal+) suggest that the Reds are close to signing another midfielder in the form of Polish star Piotr Zielinski and his move should be completed by tomorrow.
The 21-year-old “technically gifted” (WhoScored) midfielder scored 5 goals and provided 6 assists in 35 league games for Empoli (on loan from Udinese).
It will not come as a surprise if the likes of Lucas and Allen leave the club. Here is how Liverpool will line up with Zielinski if he does end up joining for the Reds.
