Report: Midfielder to snub Liverpool after the Reds take ‘too much’ time


Liverpool are set to miss out on the signing of Piotr Zieliński as the Reds have taken ‘too much’ time to complete the deal, according to reports from Mondo Udinese

It is no secret that Liverpool have been interested in securing the services of Zieliński for quite a while now and various reports had claimed that the Reds had already managed to seal the deal to land the midfielder.

Zieliński not joining Liverpool

Evidently, the transfer has not been completed as of yet though and now according to reports emerging out of Italy, there is a distinct possibility that Liverpool may actually miss out on the signing of the 22-year-old.

Mondo Udinese claim that Liverpool and Udinese have still not managed to agree on a fee for Zieliński and the Reds’ haggling over the asking price is said to have tested the patience of the young midfielder.

Liverpool are also not on good terms with Udinese owners, the Pozzo Family, as Watford (a club owned by the same entity) managed to lure promising youngster Jerome Sinclair away from Anfield recently and as a result, the negotiations for Zieliński have not quite gone smoothly.

As a further blow for Liverpool, Napoli have also joined in the race to sign Zieliński and it looks very likely that the Premier League side will not be signing the Polish international.



  1. Getting annoyed now that we seem to be connected to every young player on the continent of Europe, most with names I can’t pronounce, most I’ve never heard of, most at small clubs I’ve never heard of and all of them seemingly ‘Brilliant’.
    For God’s sake, let’s get real here! If the only thing that matters is to win the Under-21 League with players having names that would go down a storm if you were playing Scrabble, and then sell them on at a huge potential profit in three years then, so be it, let’s go for it, but if the idea is to try to target the top four next season we need players who are already shaving, who have got over the last of their nappy rash and who aren’t frightened watching ‘Bambi’.
    Gonzalo Higuaín would help us win the league, a couple of young kids won’t. Simple as that!
    I’ve seen us supposedly interested in Oxlade-Chamberlain and a Barca reserve CB at a ludicrous fee. How many other supposedly top teams always buy RESERVE players from other clubs and then hope to dramatically IMPROVE? Can’t see Chelsea, City, United or Arsenal raiding other clubs for players not quite good enough for their teams, can you?
    On Zeikinski – another name that a Scrabble fan would drool over – he’ll follow the same well-trodden path as players like Eriksen, of Spurs. Apparently set for us, we wouldn’t budge on the fee, he got fed-up waiting and Spurs came in, paid the extra £2m and got one of the best midfielders in the country. Look at the league table now to see the wisdom of spending that mere £2m extra! We are just not learning from our mistakes . . .
    And as for the recently-revived rumour about bringing Pepe Reina back let’s not forget he wasn’t that good the last time he was here . . . and he’s three years older now!
    We seriously need to look at our transfer policy . . .
