“He was meant to play for Liverpool” – Club president reveals transfer ‘option’, Klopp still keen on player



Often thrown into articles about Piotr Zielinski, Liverpool, or more precisely Jürgen Klopp, are still big fans of the Polish midfielder.
The German manager is reportedly still very fond of the Napoli playmaker, having come very close to bringing his services to Anfield a couple of years ago.
A lot of reasons were given as to why the Reds failed to acquire the youngster, but the Empoli president decided to set things straight, and revealed the details behind Zielinski?s 2016 summer transfer.
Fabrizio Corsi told Radio Kiss Kiss, relayed by Calciomercato: ?He was meant to play for Liverpool. When he came to Naples, he had that option, but they did really well to convince him.

“I have a few regrets regarding him. He was decisive for us, but I didn?t ask for a ransom. I was working with Udinese?s interests in mind, who then had an agreement with Naples. It?s hard to deal with Pozzo. For me, he?s the best.” Owned by Udinese at the time, Zielinski had spent the last two seasons on loan at Napoli, where his status in Italy increased considerably, helping the Serie A side stay up two years in a row, eventually getting relegated the season after he left.
Since his transfer to the south of Italy instead of Liverpool, the 24-year-old has made 104 appearances in all competitions, scored 15 goals and picked up 10 assists.
