AC Milan are ready to show off their chequebook in a battle with a big-spending Liverpool team who have already spent over £30m on Sadio Mane.
The target of this fracas between the two European rivals is Polish midfielder Piotr Zielinski who after spending last season on loan at Empoli, has returned to Udinese.
Primarily an attacking midfielder, Piotr is just as effective on the wings or even behind a striker. Zielinski will fit straight into the team Vincenzo Montella is building and could very well be an asset from the moment he joins.
If, he joins.
Napoli are also chasing the in-demand Polish international, so Zielinski pretty much has the ‘cream of Europe’ knocking at his door. Despite the attention from Liverpool and Napoli, it is likely that AC Milan can present the most intriguing offer to Zielinski and his agents.
Whatever happens, it’s a sign of Milan’s newfound ‘steady’ ambition as they target solid signings instead of over-priced talent.
Something to look forward to!
