Liverpool had been on the lookout for Piotr Zielinski through the summer however the Red did not manage to secure the player’s move to the Anfield instead Zielinski will be heading to Napoli this summer as the latter confirmed the player’s move to the club from Udinese.
The Italian club secured the player’s services as the Merseysiders turned onlookers on the deal.
Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio at the end of June had claimed that Zielinski is set to complete medical at the Anfield, following the elimination of his team during the Euro 2016.
