Liverpool boost: Long-time transfer target expected to leave club in summer

Liverpool have been handed some good news on the transfer front.

Liverpool’s biggest weakness this season has been their midfield.

Jurgen Klopp built his success at Liverpool around a fast, powerful, pressing midfield, which mainly consisted of Georginio Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson and Fabinho.

However, Wijnaldum has now left, Henderson is not the player he once was and Fabinho has also put in some questionable displays over the last few months.

Now, ahead of the summer transfer window, Jurgen Klopp and co. have been handed a major boost regarding one of their long-term targets.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Piotr Zielinski of Napoli has been linked with Liverpool since 2013.

And whilst Napoli are currently focused on their title challenge, Romano is of the opinion that Zielinski will likely leave Napoli this summer.

“Liverpool have been linked with Piotr Zielinski for a long time, since 2013 I think,” Romano said.

“We’re seeing those links again, but my understanding at the moment is that there’s nothing concrete.

“It’s almost impossible for agents, players or directors to discuss players’ futures with Napoli as they are 101% focused on the final part of the season.

“There is no interest in talks, contracts, or transfer plans. They have Serie A to win, they have the Champions League to focus on, and nothing is decided.

“Still, my personal feeling is that Zielinski in the summer will have a good chance to leave.”
