Colombia's Juan Camilo Zuniga (R) fouls Brazil's Neymar which results in him being stretchered off
Liverpool look set to miss out on the services of Polish talent Piotr Zielinski.
However, it now appears that he is actually off to Napoli – in a deal that will see Watford unexpectedly benefit.
Football Italia reports many sources in Italy as suggesting that a deal is close between Napoli and Zielinski’ parent club Udinese – who are owned by the Pozzo family who also own Watford.
The deal will reportedly see Napoli trade Juan Camilo Zuniga to Udinese, who will then immediately loan him to Watford. New Watford boss Walter Mazzarri worked with Zielinski during his time in charge of Napoli.
Zuniga is a 30-year-old full-back who has represented Colombia on 61 occasions and will bring plenty of energy to the either wide defensive position and can also play at wing-back – something Mazzarri often uses.

Once again it seems Watford are set to benefit from a Liverpool loss, just as they did with the signature of Jerome Sinclair earlier this season.
