Piotr Zielinski has been heavily tipped to make a Liverpool move for quite some time, but it looks as though we’re going to miss out on him after all this time. The Polish international appears to be making a switch between Serie A sides Udinese and AC Milan, as we’ve apparently given up hope of signing the 22-year-old, according to Goal.
As the report suggests, the Udinese star has been repeatedly linked with a move to either Liverpool, Napoli, or more recently Milan. We’ve looked like the favourites for a while, but have been regularly out-bid by the two Italian sides.
Despite Napoli having an offer accepted, the player himself turned down the personal terms on offer in order to hold out for Liverpool (via Goal). It seems he’s more willing to accept the deal offered by Milan though, especially knowing we are no longer in for him.
It seems like Zielinski would still prefer a move to Liverpool, and after promising to make the move to Anfield earlier this summer (via the Daily Star) it seemed inevitable he’d be our player next season.
Now that we’ve refused to match Udinese’s demands though, he’s seemingly come to terms with the fact that a move to Liverpool is unlikely to happen.
Many Liverpool fans were growing tired with the long and drawn out transfer saga anyway, and will no doubt just be happy to potentially hear an end to it. Now we can turn our attention elsewhere.
