Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis confirms Piotr Zielinski “is doing everything to resist, as he wants Liverpool.”

The Udinese-owned midfielder spent this season on loan at Empoli and a deal is done between the clubs.

The Partenopei are due to hand over €12m plus ownership of Juan Camilo Zuniga, who in turn would be loaned to Watford.

Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis confirms Piotr Zielinski “is doing everything to resist, as he wants Liverpool.”

The Udinese-owned midfielder spent this season on loan at Empoli and a deal is done between the clubs.

The Partenopei are due to hand over €12m plus ownership of Juan Camilo Zuniga, who in turn would be loaned to Watford.

“I negotiated for Zielinski with the Pozzo family and we finalised every detail,” De Laurentiis told the Corriere dello Sport.

“Instead it now seems as if the player is doing everything possible to resist the move and not come here. He wants Liverpool.”

It’s reported the Poland international wants to hang on and wait for Liverpool to revive their interest.

“Maybe he has never been to Naples, or just loves The Beatles… If I were Zielinski, I’d run here. I’d tell him, are you not interested in playing the Champions League with Maurizio Sarri as your teacher?”

De Laurentiis also discussed other activity on the transfer market.

“I am negotiating for seven players and am counting on securing at least three. Hector Herrera and Gianluca Lapadula are realistic names, while I did also contact Monaco for Fabinho.

“We have 11 first choice players, then we can count on the likes of Dries Mertens, Manolo Gabbiadini, Vlad Chiriches, Ivan Strinic and Mirko Valdifiori. I must say Valdifiori can’t be that useless, because everyone is asking me for him.

“I paid €10m for Alberto Grassi, Sarri really likes David Lopez, then with Lorenzo Tonelli and Rafael that takes us to 20 players. How is that not enough?

“I told Valencia that Raul Albiol costs €15m, otherwise he is staying with us. That’s the case even if he goes towards the end of his contract and doesn’t reach an agreement to renew.”
