Liverpool ready to beat Man City in race for £107m release clause Napoli star

Manchester City and Liverpool are reportedly both keen on Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski.

Zielinski, who has also been linked with Real Madrid, recently signed a new long-term contract at Napoli which is believed to include a release clause of £107m.

However, according to Calciomercato, City and Liverpool are both desperate to sign the Poland international and will battle Los Blancos for his services at the end of the current season.

The 24-year-old joined Napoli from Udinese in the summer of 2016 and scored seven times in 47 appearances in all competitions for the Italian giants during the 2017-18 campaign.

Zielinski, who can operate in a number of midfield positions, has also netted six times in 37 appearances for Poland.
