Former Liverpool goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek says his Polish compatriot Piotr Zielinski should not have any regrets over choosing Napoli.
Napoli face Liverpool tonight in the Champions League and Zielinski will have a chance to try and get one over the Reds.
Liverpool were interested in signing Zielinski in 2016. The Liverpool Echo quoted Zielinski saying Jurgen Klopp wanted him badly, but he chose Napoli instead.
Two years on ex-Red Jerzy Dudek is backing that decision, believing Zielinski is better suited to Italian football, playing for Udinese previously.
He added that the 24-year-old still has plenty of improving to do.
Dudek told Tuttomercatoweb yesterday: "There were various rumors about Liverpool, but for me it was good to accept Napoli because he was born and raised in Italian football.
"He is growing regularly in this football, he is a great talent, very complete, but he must have more confidence in himself to make the definitive leap in quality."
Zielinski is reportedly valued at £58 million, Calciomercato reported last month.
Just this week, The Mail report Arsenal are considering a move for Zielinski as a replacement for Aaron Ramsey.
