Liverpool will be in a battle with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City as they prepare to sign one of Europe’s finest player Piotr Zielinski after impressing Napoli.
Zielinski has been likened with the Czech Republic and Juventus legend Pavel Nedved, having the ability to shoot from distance with both legs.
The 24-year-old was given a pay rise in a contract renewal that was tagged with £107 million release clause.
Notwithstanding, the versatile player could not be limited by the contract as he already caught the eyes of several clubs including Real Madrid.
Zielinski was the forefront to Napoli’s 3 : 2 victory against AC Milan after scoring a brace.
Albeit, Liverpool already signed two midfielders and despite having many other midfield options, it appears that Klopp would want to add more depth to the midfield as he battles with arch rivals , Manchester City.
Pep Guardiola only signed Riyad Mahrez during the summer but would want to add more fresh legs to the team in January.
Zielinski’s patience with and without the ball caught the eyes of his former teammate and Chelsea’s midfielder Jorginho in a 1-all draw against Poland.
According to him:
“When you have a man who does not watch the game and only looks at you, you can only try to make room for your team-mates.”
He appears to take cognizance of every microscopic details and direction: with his recent performance, Klopp would really have a player in hand if they can break through his buy-out clause.
Which club best favours the 24-year-old?
