According to the Mirror, Liverpool have been chasing the signing of Polish wonderkid Kacper Kozlowski from Pogon Szczecin. However, the highly-rated teenager has opened up on his future amid the ongoing transfer rumours and his recent comments suggest that he is not very eager to complete a high-profile move immediately.
“I try to cut myself off from this type of information. Let my agent deal with it. I don’t know what I’m going to do tomorrow, much less whether I will finish the season in Pogoń or leave in winter. I don’t think about it, I do my own thing. And big names. they do not impress me.”
Told the 17-year-old (as quoted by Polish outlet Interia Sport). But he has not ruled it out either citing his ‘dream’ of achieving this ‘class of club’ through ‘small steps’.
What Kozlowski Would Offer In Liverpool Midfield
The midfield prodigy is compared to Kevin De Bruyne for his all-round ability in the centre of the pitch. Not only has he exhibited his excellence as a midfield attacker but also showcased mastery from a slightly deeper role. Kozlowski is now a regular for Poland at the senior level and his appearance against Spain in the UEFA EURO 2020 depicts the potential he holds to flourish in the coming days.
The youngster has already secured a first-team status for Pogon Szczecin with 12 appearances so far this term across competitions. The likes of Bayer Leverkusen, AC Milan, RB Leipzig and Salzburg are also rivalling the Reds to rope him in, but the Ekstraklasa side are determined to retain his services beyond the winter window. He is contracted at Pogoń until the summer of 2023 and the club must aim for maximizing the profit upon completion of the ongoing campaign.
Why The Reds Must Secure His Services
Liverpool, meanwhile, are well equipped in the centre of the pitch. James Milner, Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara and Fabinho are there with profound experience in the middle of the park, whereas manager Jurgen Klopp has promoted young duo Harvey Elliott and Curtis Jones ahead of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita.
Having said that, the Reds opted not to bring in a replacement of Georginio Wijnaldum and parted ways with Marko Grujic on permanent terms. The veterans are already in their 30s, also the form and fitness concerns of both Keita and Oxlade-Chamberlain cast doubts over their long-term future at Anfield. It’s time to freshen things up across the pitch and rope in these prospects accordingly to succeed the ageing stars in the long run.
