Liverpool transfer news: Piotr Zielinski latest midfielder linked with a move to Anfield

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will know that his midfield situation needs to be addressed quickly.

The options in the middle of the park available to the German aren’t up to the standard required to challenge for league titles.

A report from Rudy Galetti suggests the Reds are looking to bring in a central player soon.

The name on every Liverpool fan’s lips right now is Jude Bellingham.

His future is set to be one of the biggest talking points of the summer, but he won’t be going anywhere this month.

Another option is Brighton star Moises Caicedo, and Klopp has been told he would be the ‘perfect’ signing.

Rudy Galetti now believes that Liverpool want to sign Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski.

The Polish international will be a familiar name to Liverpool fans after his exceptional performance against them this season.

Zielinski scored a brace and provided an assist in Napoli’s 4-1 demolition of Liverpool back in September.

He clearly did enough that day to turn some heads at the Merseyside club, who sat up and paid attention.

Liverpool want to sign Zielinski

Rudy Galetti suggests that the 28-year-old is one of a number of names on Liverpool’s shortlist right now.

In reality, one midfielder is unlikely to completely solve Liverpool’s midfield conundrum.

The ‘exceptional’ international isn’t the most prolific goal scorer, but does have six goals and seven assists in all competitions.

Not only that, but Zielinski is a fantastic passer of the ball, and provides a competent link between defence and attack.

He’s quite a passive defender, although that’s no surprise when he’s playing alongside Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa at Napoli.

Liverpool will want to sign Zielinski alongside another midfielder if possible.

At 28, he’s a couple of years younger than the likes of Thiago Alcantara and Jordan Henderson.

However, Liverpool need a player at their peak, with many of their options very much at the beginning of their careers.

Zielinski certainly isn’t at the same level as someone like Bellingham, but could be a very useful signing regardless.
