Liverpool seem very serious about signing Polish midfielder Piotr Zielinski this summer and have been trying to lure him for quite some time.
There have been reports (Sky) that the Reds have submitted a bid worth 9.5 million pounds to hire the services of the Serie A midfielder who wants to reject Napoli and move to Anfield.
Now, after the latest update provided by Zielinski’s agent, Liverpool have a clear run to finally seal the signing of the 22-year-old star.
His agent Bartlomiej Bolek claimed (Daily Star via Radio CRC):
“To be honest, there is no chance that the player can go to Napoli.”
Piotr spent last year on loan with Italian club Empoli and had an impressive campaign for a side that finished 10th in the league.
In 36 Serie A outings, Zielinski directly contributed in 11 goals (5 goals and 6 assists). He completed 5th most dribbles in the league last season and claimed that dribbling is a part of his style of play (WhoScored).
“Well, dribbling is part of my style of play, but I think I have other skills too. I am technically quite gifted and I can play with accuracy with both feet, which are both useful assets for a player.”
At the moment, Piotr is on national duty with Poland at the European Championships. It looks highly likely that Liveprool will win the race to sign him and a move to Anfield will probably be finalized after the tournament concludes in France.
