Arsenal have reportedly set sights on 'exceptional' midfielder who's more complete than Foden
Arsenal are reportedly eyeing Piotr Zielinski, a player who has earned huge praise in recent years.
Napoli chief Aurelio De Laurentiis won’t sell players on the cheap, Napoli could be willing to do business if a good offer comes on the way.
Zielinski is a technically gifted midfielder who has been with Napoli since 2016.
He is closing in on 250 appearances for the Partenopei and has scored 32 goals.
In addition, Zielinski has 63 caps for Poland and has played at the 2018 World Cup as well as Euro 2016 and Euro 2020.
Now 27, he is in the prime of his career and now would be a great chance for him to try somewhere new.
Paulo Sousa, who took the Poland national team reins in January, has spoken highly about the reported Spurs target.
“Zielinski is an exceptional player,” The Guardian quotes Sousa as saying.
“Recently, I was listening to Pep Guardiola talking about Phil Foden.
“He said he was a genius, an outstanding talent.
“But to get to the highest world level, he needs to know when to change the pace of the game.
“He [Foden] still lacks that. And Piotr has it.
“He sees everything, he perfectly feels the space between his teammates and the opponent.
“[Zielinski] has an amazing sense of timing and pitch geometry, he can slow down or speed up the game with one pass.
“He is a beautiful footballer. Sometimes he just needs a little more adrenaline.”
