Liverpool HAVE bid 9.5 million pounds for Udinese’s Polish star Piotr Zielinski, confirm the Liverpool Echo.
According to the Echo, Liverpool have put in a £9.5million bid for Piotr Zielinski and believe that Jurgen Klopp’s pull and Liverpool’s willingness to pay for the players asking price would be enough to complete the deal for the Udinese man. The Echo also report that the player has rejected a move to Napoli to join Liverpool. Napoli have an agreement in place with Udinese for the player, according to their President. Napoli’s President, Aurelio De Laurentiis, was recently quoted saying, “Liverpool have made a bid for him and Zielinski wants to join them but we are trying to convince the player to join us, because we have an agreement with Udinese.” But the Echo understands that a U -turn from the player is highly unlikely as Zielinski has his heart set out on a move to Anfield.
The Liverpool boss is believed to have spoken to the player over the telephone as well, assuring him that he would be a major part of his plans going forward.
Zielinski has featured 13 times for Poland, having scored 3 goals. He is also amongst the substitutes for Poland’s ongoing game against Northern Ireland.
