International Serie A frontman eyed by Liverpool ahead of potential summer transfer

Posted by

According to reports, Liverpool are keen on signing Piotr Zielinski this summer.

Goal have revealed that the 21-year-old—currently on loan at Empoli from Udinese—has emerged as a transfer target for the Reds, having previously been linked with a move to both Manchester United and Manchester City.

The website report that the youngster has endeared himself to the Merseyside heavyweights with his creativity and his passing skills, while he can also hit a mean set piece.

He has shone in Serie A so far this season, contributing five assists and scored two goals, and he has proved his versatility with appearances across the midfield.

According to the report, the Anfield giants had explored the possibility of bringing Zielinski to the Premier League in January, but have decided to wait until the summer.

While Jurgen Klopp replaced Brendan Rodgers in October, the German coach has yet to truly imprint his identity on the Liverpool squad, at least in terms of personnel.

Steven Caulker—who arrived in January on loan from Queens Park Rangers—is the only significant arrival since Klopp’s appointment, and the technically proficient Zielinski could prove to be a valuable addition to the Reds squad.

Zielinski has represented Poland at every youth level from U15 to U21, and made his debut for the senior side in 2013.
