Liverpool target Zielinski: De Bruyne comparison? Well...

Napoli winger Piotr Zielinski has ducked comparisons with Manchester City star Kevin de Bruyne.

Zielinski, linked with Liverpool, was likened to De Bruyne by Polish legend Zibi Boniek this week.

But the midfielder said: "We're talking about a champion, he's been one of the best in his role for three years.

"I am pleased with this comparison, but today he is much stronger than me. I have the potential to become a champion, I hope it happens soon, but I have to think only about working.

"Some things need to be improved, if I work hard, it will come easy."
