Pietr Zielinski: Poised to stay in Italy

Jurgen Klopp will move on to other targets as Udinese’s Pietr Zielinski is reportedly closing in on a permanent transfer to AC Milan.

The Poland star has spent the last two seasons on loan at Empoli and has long been on the Reds’ radar, but his parent club Udinese have proved difficult to negotiate with according to Goal.

The 22-year-old is said to have had his heart set on a move to Anfield. However, he is now ready to join AC Milan after talks with Liverpool continued to break down.

Zielinski is not the only target Liverpool have failed to capture, with new boys Middlesbrough set to sign Borussia Dortmund centre-back Neven Subotic.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has already expressed his desire to sign players who can enhance a strong team spirit and not chase those who purely have big reputations.

“At the moment nobody thinks about the good games we played last season,” Klopp told journalists.

“They only think Manchester United have taken this player or Manchester City have taken this player and we have taken ‘what is the name?’ and that is it.

“This moment for us it is about creating and building a team for next year. We have to prove our thoughts about the team work.”

    “Zielinski is not the only target Liverpool have failed to capture,with Middlesbrough set to sign Neven Subotic”. We had the chance to sign Subotic on loan in January. Klopp wasn’t interested,and we got Caulker instead,and he hasn’t even made a bid for Subotic this window so how have we “failed to capture” him? If Klopp wanted Subotic,he’d have made a bid by now. “Failure to capture him” implies that the player turned us down. That’s not the case here

    Is Zielinski an upgrade to our current attacking players? If he is, why not give a liitle bit more money to the greedy Italian club and tie down a good player? If not, why spend so much time on him? The only possibility is we cannot make sure of the quality of the player, so we only want to buy cheap. It will only lead to flop signings.

    If we want a proven Right AM behind the lone striker, why not throw all our things out for Mahrez? He has already showed & proved his ability clearly to all EPL clubs. 100% superior to Gotze. If we cannot get Mahrez, why not try Perisic? Perisic is at least superior to Brozovic in the attacking front. However, Klopp has already said that he does not need big names. Is Mahrez a big name player? Perisic has a fallen out with Klopp in Dortmund, will they forgive each other? About Brozovic, I have no comment because I don’t know too much about this player.

    As much as I like Mane, I see him more as a Sterling replacement. Hes more about pace and strength. Still I don’t think we have replaced Suarez very well. Would love to see us buy that quality striker with ball juggling skills. Surely there’s got to be one or two gems out there. Leicester found one with Mahrez, hopefully our scouts are out there looking for someone similar without the Marque price tag…
