Despite having played just nine Serie A games without any goals, the midfielder has been called up to the Poland international squad, picking up five appearances and scoring scoring three goals after impressing for the various Polish national age groups from under-15 and up.
However, Zielinski looks set to stay in Italy: "The future? I talked to the manager, I have a couple of offers," he told TMW.
"But for now I am in Udinese and I'm just fine here, I just think about growing with this team. Farewell in January? At the moment I'm not thinking about any transfer."

Stevan Jovetic, Jesus Navas, Alvaro Negredo and Fernandinho were the big name arrivals at the Etihad Stadium.

They currently lie third after five games with ten points, only north London duo Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are above them in the table.
