Inter Milan have been credited with Napoli star Piotr Zielinski, whose contract with the reigning Serie A champions is set to expire at the end of the season. Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta addressed the rumours while speaking to the press after the Nerazzurri thrashed Napoli 0-3 at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona on Sunday.
Marotta said Inter were aware of Zielinski’s current contract situation, but he also expressed belief that Napoli are working on a new deal for the Poland international. He confirmed that Inter are looking at different players, but also that this is not the time for the club to engage in any talks about potential transfers at the end of the season.
Zielinski rose through the youth ranks at Polish club Lubin, and in 2011, he moved to Italy where he joined Udinese’s Under-19 side. He played two years for Udinese and another two on loan at Empoli, before joining Napoli in 2016. In all competitions, he’s made a total of 348 appearances in all competitions for his current employers, scoring 50 goals and contributing 46 assists. He was previously linked with Liverpool, and more recently with Barcelona.
