According to Gianluca di Marzio, Udinese midfielder Piotr Zielinski is stalling on a move to Liverpool this summer.

The midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield for several months but so far a deal has not been concluded.

According to the Guardian, the Reds made a £9.5 million bid for his services earlier this month and were fighting off interest from Napoli for his services.

A deal is likely being held up by Euro 2016, with the player a part of the Poland squad that has made it to the quarter final stage following their last 16 win over Switzerland.

However, it now transpires that the midfielder may also be a cause of the deal being stuck as Gianluca di Marzio reports that the player is stalling on the move.

That has led Napoli to try to secure him once again, and they have already struck a €13 million, around £10.7 million, agreement with current club Udinese for the midfielder.

It now remains to be seen where he will end up this summer, with Liverpool not looking like a likely destination at this moment in time.
