Liverpool are tracking Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski ahead of a possible summer bid, according to reports from Italy.

Jurgen Klopp is said to be a long-term admirer of the 23-year-old Poland international and has reportedly been keeping tabs on him since before he was manager at Anfield.

And, according to Tutto Mercato Web, the Reds are considering making an offer for the Napoli ace when the summer transfer window opens.

Playmaker Zielinski has been a regular for Napoli this season, scoring seven goals and providing one assist in 38 appearances for the second-placed Serie A outfit.

Meanwhile, further reports in Italy claim the Reds would have to pay £57million to land the Polish ace this summer.

Zielinski’s current contract at Napoli runs until 2021 and, according to Corriere dello Sport, that deal features at £57.2million release clause.

But Liverpool are said to be willing to stump up that fee for a player who was recently compared to Manchester City star Kevin de Bruyne by Poland legend Zbigniew Boniek.

“I watched him play when he was sixteen and I immediately thought, ‘this is an extraordinary player’,” former Juventus and Roma star Boniek told Corriere dello Sport.

“De Bruyne? They are different players, clearly, but equal in the ability to affect a team. 

“But, for quality, Piotr is superior to me. I am still waiting for it, but let’s give it a year or two at the most and we will realize it.”
