Zielinski in action for Empoli..

Liverpool fans react to news Piotr Zielinski is set to join AC Milan

Published 2 Comments

On the back of a season that promised so much and delivered so little, Liverpool are looking to invest and improve throughout the transfer window.

Although Jurgen Klopp has denied the need to chase ‘big names’, there can be little doubting he’ll be involved in plenty of business over this summer. One player frequently linked to the club has been Polish midfielder Piotr Zielinski.

However, it has emerged today that a deal with Liverpool has fallen through and the 22-year-old will move to AC Milan instead. While Klopp will likely be disappointed, it’s fair to say the fans are far less concerned.
