Liverpool's pursuit of Piotr Zielinski has suffered a fresh setback as reports coming out of Italy suggest Napoli are now in pole position to sign the Polish midfielder.
The 22 year old Polish midfielder Piotr Zielinski who missed Poland's exit to Portugal on penalties on Thursday has been linked with a move to Liverpool but AC Milan might attempt to hijack the move for the Empoli midfielder.

The gap between them and the currently 18th placed team Palermo is 3 points. Napoli, on the other hand, are serious title contenders this season and will hope to capitalize on Juve’s potential slip ups in the match days on account of their injury problems.
