After multiple media outlets linked him with Liverpool and numerous other big clubs across England and Europe, Polish teenager Kacper Kozlowski has addressed the speculation.
If media speculations are to be believed, Kacper Kozlowski is one of the most wanted teenagers in Europe as multiple big clubs are linked with a move for the Pole. These links began surfacing after the teenager made two appearances for Poland at the European Championships during the summer.
Kozlowski plays as an attacking midfielder for his club Pogon Szczecin and is already compared with Kevin De Bruyne for his playing style. Incidentally, Manchester City and Chelsea are some of the big clubs interested in signing the prospect from the Polish club.
Barcelona are also reportedly in the mix, and so are Manchester United, as the race for the teenager heats up. With a contract that expires in 2023, Kozlowski is reportedly set to move away from his homeland and forge a career in one of the big leagues.
However, the latest speculation pointed towards the teenager inching closer with a move to Liverpool. While the Merseysiders are one of the admirers of the attacking midfielder, there have been no concrete evidence of their approach to the Polish club.
Kozlowski spoke to the Polish outlet Sport Interia, and quotes from that article were posted by Merseyside publication Liverpool Echo, where the teenager dismisses any speculation. The midfielder has stated things are being handled by his agent, as he aims to take the next steps rather carefully.
Kozlowski said. “I try to cut myself off from this type of information. Let my agent handle it. I don’t know what I will do tomorrow, much less whether I will finish the season in Pogoń or leave in winter. I don’t think about it; I do my own thing. And big names, they do not impress me.
“My dream is to play in this class of club in the future, but I think that the best thing to do is to apply the principle of small steps to reach the goal,” he said. The 17-year-old has scored three goals and set up two more in 12 games across all competitions this season.
Despite being just 17, he has five caps for the Poland national team as well. Clearly a player with great promise, it will be interesting to see if Liverpool do actually end up signing him.
