Piotr Zielinski is the latest name to be linked with a move to Manchester City, with reports in Italy suggesting contact has been made over a deal.

According to reports in Italy from Calciomercato, both City and Liverpool are keen to sign the player, despite suggestions that he is close to penning a new deal with the Serie A side.

Spanish giants Real Madrid are also said to be interested in the Polish international, while Chelsea were heavily linked throughout the summer.

Zielinski has been something of a long-term target for the Reds. He was heavily linked with a move to Anfield prior to joining Napoli and has been a player on their radar ever since.

The creative midfielder was subject to a bit-part role under Maurizio Sarri last season but remains very highly thought of at the club. Game time is likely to increase for the player this season, with Napoli stalwart Marek Hamsik reaching the latter stages of his career.
