Udinese-owned Poland international Piotr Zielinski is wanted by Milan, Napoli and Liverpool. “We’ve decided, but it’s a secret,” said his agent.
The midfielder impressed on loan at Empoli and for his country at Euro 2016, but has been close to all three clubs over a complex summer.
“I met owner Pozzo and spoke to Udinese today. We are trying to find the best solution both for the club and the player. We’ll see what happens next week,” agent Bartolomej Bolek told Gazzetta.it.
“We know that many offers reached Udinese for Zielinski. We’re talking to Pozzo and the interested clubs.
“After the Euros he went on vacation, as he needed to rest after a long season. He will return to Udine on July 22 or 23.”
Is it true that Liverpool have been tracking Zielinski for many weeks?
“It’s true, but I don’t like to talk about negotiations in the papers.”
According to reports, Liverpool haven’t actually made a formal offer, whereas Milan proposed €15m plus bonuses and Napoli bid €14m plus Juan Camilo Zuniga.
“I don’t know precisely what offers have been made to Udinese. In the meeting with Pozzo I analysed the situation and the requests.”
Napoli already confirmed Zielinski turned them down, so does he have a preference between Milan and Liverpool?
“We have already made our decision, but for the moment it’s a secret…”
