Sources close to Poland international Piotr Zielinski claim he's excited by the prospect of working with revered manager Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.
This has been reported by the Liverpool Echo, who suggest that Udinese midfielder Zielinski favours a move to Anfield over Napoli.
Zielinski, 22, has enjoyed a fine period playing for Poland during this summer's European Championships, but it's far from certain as to whether he will complete a move to English soil before the close of the transfer window.

While it certainly appears Zielinski wants to sign for Liverpool, there is still work to be done in the potential deal at this stage.
The Liverpool Echo have duly handed us an update as negotiations seemingly continue; they claim that the Reds do not have an agreement in place with Udinese but suggest that a deal is likely to take place.
Indeed, the report expects a compromise to be made between the £9.5 million offer Liverpool tabled this month and the £15m that Udinese rate their player at.
Ultimately, though, the Liverpool hierarchy may well have to stay patient in their pursuit of securing his services. That's because Zielinski has made it clear that he wants to focus on Euro 2016 rather than sorting out a potential transfer.
And there's every chance that Liverpool fans will have to wait a little while. With Poland, the versatile midfielder has every chance of going all the way in the competition. Poland are on the favourable side of the draw and face Switzerland in the Round of 16 on Saturday.
With or without Zielinski in their ranks next season, big things will be expected on Merseyside in the 2016/17 campaign.
Jurgen Klopp's side flattered to deceive in the Premier League last term and must challenge the big boys towards the summit of the division sooner rather than later.
Changes are clearly required, but with Klopp at the helm, the Liverpool faithful will be quietly confident that their side can progress.
