Jürgen Klopp's reported swoop for Piotr Zielinski could make Liverpool truly unstoppable


Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing the Polish midfielder.


According to a report from Italian media outlet Calcio Mercato, Liverpool are keen to sign Napoli midfield ace Piotr Zielinski this summer, although the Polish ace will not come cheap.

Reds boss Jürgen Klopp will be desperate to bolster his central midfield ranks Anfield at before the start of next season, and the 24-year-old could be just the ticket.


Zielinski is an all-action midfielder, and his energy and enthusiasm would undoubtedly help Liverpool improve upon their play through the middle of the park.

Italian publication Calcio Mercato claims that Liverpool are 'insistent' on signing the Napoli ace in the summer, although he would set them back €65 million (£56 million), according to the Mirror.

The Reds' pursuit of the 24-year-old could be problematic, however.

The former Empoli man told reporters how he wants to stay in Naples for at least five more years, as quoted by the Mirror:

"New contract? I am happy at Napoli, I want to stay here five more years to help the team to improve."

Should Liverpool make a concrete offer for his services, however, the prospect of moving to the Premier League to play under Jürgen Klopp might just prove to be too hard to resist for Zielinski.
