WARSAW, Poland. May 23 (PSN) – Piotr Zielinski’s rumoured move to Liverpool FC may no longer be a ‘sure thing’ anymore.
With Liverpool failing to win this years UEFA Europa League final, the club has no European football to offer for next season.Zielinski was linked to a possible move to Liverpool since January. However, talks of a possible transfer only accelerated since last week, after Reds manager Jurgen Klopp personally selected the Polish international for his transfer summer wishlist.
While the Pole agreed to personal terms with the English club there were still a lot of formalities left to conclude.
A few days later Liverpool lost 3:1 to Sevilla FC in the UEFA Europa League final in Basel. That loss may now mean in losing Zielinski’s signature as well.
Zielinski’s agent has now come out in saying that a move to Liverpool is no longer a ‘sure thing’. This is due to the fact that the midfielder wants to play in Europe next season – something that Liverpool cannot promise after finishing 8th place in the English Premier League.
Both Juventus and Napoli are reportedly now in transfer talks with Zielinski’s agent, two clubs whom which will play in the UEFA Champions League next season.
Zielinski, who has impressed during his loan spell at Empoli, is expecting to change clubs this summer. According to Italian media, his current club Udinese will not stand in his way but are asking a fee of around 15 million euros for him.
Klopp has already determined his backup signing in Borussia Monchengladbach’s Mahmoud Dahoud in case Zielinski’s move to Anfield were to fall through.
