Liverpool target Piotr Zielinski has revealed that he has held talks with Jurgen Klopp over a potential summer move to Anfield.
The 21-year-old midfielder, who is on loan at Empoli from Udinese, was quoted by Polish media outlet Sportowe Fakty as saying: “There is a lot of truth in (talk of) the interest of (Liverpool boss) Jurgen Klopp in me.
“There was contact, I do not deny that.”
Schalke defender Sead Kolasinac has played down speculation that he could join Liverpool in the summer.
There have been reports that the 22-year-old has been watched several times by the Reds.
But he told Sky Deutschland: “At Schalke I found a second home and my desire is to renew the contract.”
