Potr Zielinski

Liverpool have been handed a big boost in the pursuit of Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski after he failed to agree on a new contract with the Italian outfit.

It was reported that the negotiation between the player’s representative and the club hit the rock giving room for Liverpool to have the player.

Zielinski ought to have been a Reds player but the chance was blocked by his former club Udinese who refused to sell the player but instead, pushed the Polish star to Napoli where he currently plays.

Liverpool’s long term wish to sign the midfielder has been boosted as it is looking certain he will leave the Carlo Ancelotti team later in the summer.

Reports from Calciomercato says the player harbours fears that he could be hindered a move in the future with the release clause that could be placed on him if he further commits his future to the club as his current contract expires in 2021.

The playmaker is satisfied with the wage that has been offered to him but he wants to ensure that the already existing £57 million release clause on him is not increased as it might hinder his move should he decide to leave the club.
