“A foreign club is particularly interested in Riccardo Saponara and Jurgen Klopp has been talking to Piotr Zielinski since January,” confirmed Empoli.
President Fabrizio Corsi spoke to Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli about his sought-after starlets.
“I would advise Zielinski to join Maurizio Sarri at Napoli. That’s nothing against Klopp, who has been talking to the player since January.
“Therefore Liverpool moved forward, including in the head of the lad, who now has it in his mind to be in the Premier League.”
Saponara has been linked with Roma, Juventus and even a return to Milan.
“A foreign club is particularly interested in Saponara,” continued Corsi.
“As soon as they sell a player, they will come straight here to negotiate for Saponara. I cannot yet decipher his position, but he could even enter into Milan’s plans.”
