Liverpool are reportedly willing to rival Manchester City in the race to sign Piotr Zielinski, as their interest in the midfielder returns.
The Lowdown: Former Liverpool target
Earlier in Jurgen Klopp’s reign, the Poland international was endlessly linked as a target for the Anfield boss, but the transfer never ended up coming to fruition.
Zielinski was considered someone who the Liverpool boss was a big admirer of, but he ended up staying put at Udinese despite even posing with the famous red shirt.
The Latest: Reds’ interest returns
Liverpool are believed to have sent a ‘request for information’ to Napoli, although no official bid has been made yet.
The Verdict: Potential top-class signing
The departure of Gini Wijnaldum does heighten the need for a new central midfielder to come in this summer and Zielinski could be an ideal fit.
Granted, he may not be as defensively solid as some, averaging just 0.5 tackles and interceptions apiece, but he still possesses a good work-rate and team ethic.
