Liverpool closing in on midfield signing after progress in talks

Liverpool are reportedly edging ever closer to completing the signing of Udinese midfielder Piotr Zielinski with a deal likely in the coming weeks.

Reports last week had suggested that the two parties had reached an impasse with the deal put in doubt, however, it has now been suggested that those issues have been resolved.

According to Messaggero Sport, the deal could now be completed in the next couple of weeks, although Liverpool are keen to wrap up the move sooner rather than later to avoid any other interested parties making a late swoop.

Both Roma and Napoli are also interested in the Polish international, and they will undoubtedly be monitoring the situation closely in case another snag is hit in the deal.

The 22-year-old enjoyed a successful season on loan at Empoli this past year, contributing five goals and six assists in 36 appearances in all competitions.

In addition, his energy, drive and determination in midfield in general was a key part of Marco Giampaolo’s system, and in turn it’s no surprise to see that he has attracted plenty of interest from around both Italy and Europe.

However, it appears as though Jurgen Klopp will win the race to sign him, as the German tactician continues to bolster his squad this summer.

With the likes of Loris Marius, Marko Grujic and Joel Matip all joining the club ahead of next season, Klopp’s work in the transfer market is believed to be far from over as he hopes to build on their success this past year, and continue to mould and build the squad into one that fits his ideologies and tactics.
