Serie A £22.5m-rated star targeted by Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp is looking at the chance of signing Napoli creative midfielder Piotr Zielinski in the summer transfer window.

The Liverpool coach is a keen fan of the Polish international, who is under contract with Italian giants until 2021.

According to the Daily Express, Klopp has been keeping a close eye on the 23-year-old since Piotr was on loan at Empoli three years ago.

The switch would likely cost The Reds upwards of £40 million as Piotr has been in good form for Napoli this season, netting seven goals for the side that now lie second in the table.

Partenopei look like missing out on the trophy as they trail leaders The Old Lady by six points with six matches to go.

Meantime Liverpool are in the semi-finals of the Champions League while sitting third in the Premier League too, and this could sway Piotr into wanting a transfer away from Italy.

Jurgen Klopp is known to be looking at strengthening his squad to challenge Manchester City for the trophy next season, and Piotr Zielinski could well be on his way to Anfield.
