A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Polish news outlet Meczyki claimed that Liverpool are showing interest in Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski. It has been mentioned that the Reds are eyeing a move to acquire the services of the Polish talent this summer.

Zielinski’s Good Run Of Form At The Stadio Diego Armando Maradona

Zielinski is having a decent campaign at Naples as he has put in a run of impressive displays at the centre of the park. The 28-year-old has registered seven goals and ten assists in 43 matches for the Italian side this season on all fronts.

The Polish sensation has given a good account of himself by averaging 1.4 shots, 2.0 key passes and 0.6 dribbles per 90 minutes in Serie A. He has even been tidy with his ball distribution after making 86.2% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).

His current contract at Napoli is set to run out in the summer of 2024. Thus, it makes sense for the Reds to engineer a cut-price move for him in this off-season.

What Will Zielinski Bring To Liverpool?

Zielinski can strike the ball with venom and precision from all ranges and has got the vision to engineer some promising chances for his teammates in the final third.

The Polish forward is a decent dribbler with the ball as well and has added plenty of goals and assists to his game. He is a good crosser of the ball as well. Zielinski is primarily a box-to-box midfielder but can also fill in as an attacking midfielder if asked to do so.

We can expect the Poland international to bring some goals and creativity to Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp‘s midfield and help the Reds challenge for some major trophies once again over the next few years. However, it remains to be seen whether Zielinski is good enough to make a smooth transition to life in Premier League football.

Either way, the pros outweigh the cons of recruiting an experienced midfielder like Zielinski as he has what it takes to make a name for himself at Anfield. At 28, he is currently playing in his prime and is well-equipped to make an instant impact at the Merseyside club next season.
