After losing out on a deal for seven years, Liverpool has revived their interest in signing a free agent.

In 2016, Jurgen Klopp flew to visit the midfield player, but negotiations between the Reds and his club broke down. With his signature finally available again, Liverpool can again try to sign him.


Seven years after Liverpool came close to bringing the Poland international to Anfield, Piotr Zielinski, the star of Napoli, is now “in the queue” for the player.



A number of teams are expected to compete for the midfielder’s services as his contract with the defending Serie A champions expires at the end of the current campaign. According to the Italian publication Corriere della Sport, Juventus will provide competition for Jurgen Klopp’s team as they rekindle their interest in the 29-year-old.

Goalinski has no current chance of negotiating to a new contract in Naples, and he will be free to speak with other teams starting in January. Prior to the 2016–17 season, Klopp had direct talks with Zielinski about moving to Liverpool. However, after negotiations with the Premier League team went down, Udinese decided to sell him to Napoli for £14 million.


Georginio Wijnaldum, who joined from Newcastle and helped the Reds win both the Premier League and the Champions League, caught Liverpool’s attention after that. Since then, Zielinski has made almost 200 appearances for Napoli; the league championship from the previous season being the high point. However, in 2018, he claimed that a move to Anfield was almost certain.


My mind was a jumble. Zielinski stated, “Jurgen Klopp and I met when Liverpool finally got a plane.” “He stated he wished to have me on his team. I saw a foreign universe, and when I came back, my mental state had gotten even worse.


Because I had that assurance in January, I knew Liverpool really wanted me and would pick up the negotiations again. Ultimately, their relationship with Udinese didn’t work out.”


With the arrival of Alexis Mac Allister, Ryan Gravenberch, and Dominik Szoboszlai in the summer, the Reds’ midfield has seen significant changes this season; the manager has dubbed it “Liverpool 2.0.” Jordan Henderson was the main exit, although James Milner, Fabinho, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Naby Keita were all goners.


Even if Klopp was correct to point out that no club has ever had an easy time at Kenilworth Road, yesterday’s draw away to Luton Town was rather unexpected given how the season had started off. “Weird game,” he exclaimed. After the game, I had an odd sense. Although I believe we should have won, I also believe the tie was a fair outcome because we had the opportunity to lose.
