Piotr Zielinski denies talking to Jürgen Klopp

Piotr Zielinski

Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski is distancing himself from speculation that claims he could finally be up for a move to Liverpool.

The 24-year-old Poland playmaker has been linked with the Reds on a regular basis for the last couple of years and Jürgen Klopp is known to be an admirer. That doesn’t, of course, mean that the boss will make an attempt to land him, but the Italian media seem to think there’s been contact behind the scenes ahead of a possible summer move.

However, Zielinski insists he’s happy where he is, so much so that he’s ready to commit himself to a new contract.

“My representatives are discussing my renewal with Napoli and I’m only focused on playing football,” said the player.

“There was a time when I often thought about my future and that was reflected in my mental state and performances. Now I leave these things to my agent.

“I’m happy at Napoli, I have two more years left on my contact and I want to win something with this club.

“It would mean a lot to the fans and I. It would also be nice to write myself into Napoli’s history.

“I’ve never talked to [Jürgen] Klopp. There’s nothing to say about Liverpool or anyone else.

“I’m happy at Napoli. I’m working with a Coach who I’ve learned a lot from. I want to play my best football for the rest of the season and then we’ll see what happens.”
