Liverpool are thought to be interested in signing the Napoli star Piotr Zielinski, as reported by Calciomercato.

The 27-year-old midfielder is reportedly a target for Manchester City. It will be interesting to see if the Reds can fend off the competition from the Premier League champions and secure the Polish international’s services.

Liverpool hope to find a replacement for Gini Wijnaldum in the coming weeks, and Zielinski has been mentioned as a potential target.

The interest in the Polish midfielder is hardly surprising because Jurgen Klopp wanted to sign the player back in 2016 as well.

Zielinski has been a key player for Napoli over the past few years, and he had an impressive season in the Italian league last year.

Although he has a different skill set to Wijnaldum, he could prove to be a quality addition for the Liverpool midfield.

The Reds have an excellent pivot in Thiago Alcantara and Fabinho. They need to bring in a creative central midfielder now who will help create more chances and chip in with vital goals.

Napoli are under no pressure to sell the midfielder this summer, and the Reds might have to pay over the odds to convince the Italian outfit.

Zielinski seems like an ideal fit for Liverpool, and the Reds should look to submit a concrete offer for the player in the coming weeks.

The Reds have been recently linked with the likes of Yves Bissouma and Renato Sanches as well.

It will be interesting to see who they end up signing eventually.
