The agent of Udinese playmaker Piotr Zielinski has told Forza Roma that his client's move to Anfield could collapse, despite appearing to be done last week.

Zielinski, 22, was a young star in his native Poland with Zagelbie Lubin, and he was snapped up by Udinese back in 2011, as the playmaker made the move over to Italy aged just 17.

After 20 appearances in his first couple of seasons at Udinese, Zielinski has spent the last two campaigns on loan with Serie A rivals Empoli.

General view

The playmaker has been a regular for Empoli with 66 appearances in his two-year loan spell, notching five goals and six assists, catching the eye of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp in the process.

Klopp is looking to add to his Liverpool squad this summer, and reports from Polish newspaper Przeglad Sportowy last week suggested that Zielinski to Anfield was as good as done having finalised talks.

However, since then, all talk of Zielinski signing for Liverpool has gone quiet. Now, his agent Bartolomiej Bolek has shed some light on the situation.

Bolek has told Forza Roma that the move to Liverpool is at risk and could collapse, and suggested it was 'difficult' to say whether the playmaker would end up at Roma, as the player is now focusing his attentions on Poland's Euro 2016 campaign.

"Is the Liverpool move at risk? Yes, maybe," said Bolek. "It’s difficult to say. At the moment the lad is totally concentrated on the Euros," he added when asked about a move to Roma.
