Napoli ace Piotr Zielinski is looking to sign a new contract at the club, but the club and the player’s representative are waiting to do the same.
Il Mattino suggests that while the midfielder is willing to extend his stay till the summer of 2023, his agents are looking to take their time in a possible extension at the club. Napoli are also doing the same.
Aurelio di Laurentiis wants to remove the release clause that the Pole has in his deal, while the 24-year-old’s agent wants the Italian side to have a release clause of about €80 million.
That value does not seem to be enough for Di Laurentiis’ liking, and it seems that there will be a long process of negotiations before all parties reach an agreement.
But if they don’t agree, Liverpool would be ready to launch a bid for the playmaker, who was a regular first-team star under current Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri but after the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti, the midfielder has been moved to the bench.
It was revealed a few months ago that Jurgen Klopp wanted to sign the Poland international already in the past bus missed out several times.
