Napoli have emerged as strong favourites to sign Polish midfielder Piotr Zielinski from Udinese, according to Il Corriere dello Sport.
The Azzurri are already working on summer reinforcements and it appears that the 21-year-old footballer is at the centre of their attention at the moment.
Both the player himself and Udinese chiefs have confirmed Napoli interest and it appears it is only a matter of time before Zielinski arrives at Stadio San Paolo.
The attacking midfielder joined Udinese back in 2011 from Zaglebie Lubin, but he could only amass 19 league appearances during the first two seasons in the senior side.
Zielinski was then allowed to join Empoli on loan in the summer of 2014, and that proved to be a great career move.
After initially struggling for playing time, the Poland international went on to prove his worth this term, scoring 3 goals and setting up another 4 in 28 league starts.
