Piotr Zielinski set to land new Napoli deal

Piotr Zielinski is set to be handed a new contract at Napoli.

The midfielder scored twice in victory over AC Milan on Saturday.

And it's emerged Napoli are now willing to hand Zielinski a pay-rise and also increase his €65m buyout clause to beyond €100m.

Before the season kicked off, the midfielder was asked about comparisons with Manchester City star Kevin de Bruyne.

"It's an important comparison but I have to look at myself, I have to improve a lot to get to his level, there is something that can resemble the Belgian, but I assure you that I refer a lot to our captain (Marek) Hamsik," he said.
