Napoli winger Piotr Zielinski: Liverpool talks were held, but...

Napoli winger Piotr Zielinski admits he had contact with Liverpool.

Zielinski finally ended speculation about his future when he joined Napoli from Udinese for €20m at the beginning of August.

“With Liverpool, there were talks but it didn't happen," he told Sportowefakty.

“But I'm happy to be at Napoli. They're one of the best teams for a 22-year-old to join.

“Looking at their style of play and my qualities, I couldn't have made a better choice.

“I'm a reserve at the moment, but I've only just arrived. Here, [the players] are all very strong.

“[My €65m release clause] is impressive. This means that Napoli expect good games from me and wants to protect themselves."
