The Polish international who is currently on loan at Empoli from Udinese has been a target by Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp. The 21-year-old Zielinski has been in great form this season in Serie A, scoring four goals and six assists.
Zielinski was reported as saying, “There was contact, I do not deny that” (from Liverpool), which has now been confirmed by Italian club Udinese.
“There is interest from Liverpool and it is concrete interest,” Udinese director of sport Cristiano Giaretta told Italian radio station Radio Punto Zero.
“He is doing very well and has the eyes of the Premier League on him.”
The young midfielder who is valued at £11.5m, and a big fan of Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho said, “I watch him closely, and it would be great to play alongside him. I’m sure we could be a good duo on the pitch, but we’ll have to wait and see what happens.”
