Confirmed: 'Amazing' €15m Liverpool target admits he wants to 'play for' Klopp. Offer made already

Udinese attacking Piotr Zielinski just can't stop talking about Liverpool, and with the transfer window opening soon, the allegedly 'amazing' attacker has dropped another huge hint that he's on the way to Anfield this summer.

In Mid-April, Udinese's Director of Football confirmed that Liverpool have 'concrete interest' in Zielinski, and Gazetta Dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira claimed that the Reds have 'offered €15m' for the Polish attacker.

In a new interview this week with Whoscored, Zielinksi enthused:

"[Jurgen] Klopp is one of the best coaches around and it would be an honor to play for him".

This follows other Liverpool-related comments over the last couple of months:

Mar 2016: Zielinski told Futbolfejs: "Some people may think it [the Liverpool move] is only rumours but I know more about it. It would be great to play alongside Coutinho".

Apr 2016: Speaking to Polish media outlet Sportowe Fakty Zielinski further confirmed: “There is a lot of truth in rumours about Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp is interested in me, we've had some talks".

So: Liverpool's interest is 'concrete'; a €15m bid has been submitted; Zielinksi wants to 'play alongside' Coutinho; has held 'talks' with Klopp, and is keen to 'play for him' at Anfield? Smells like an imminent transfer to me.

That said, if Zielinski plays well at Euro 2016, other teams will inevitably enter the fray (and his transfer fee will probably rise), so if the Reds are intent on signing him, it's better to seal the deal sooner rather than later.
