The genius Kane

Hello and welcome to the Premier League transfer roundup of February 22, 2018. A quieter-than-usual day in today's factory, but there are some tidbits here and there. So, let's begin!

#5 What they said

So, Liverpool Echo have quoted Napoli’s Piotr Zielinski saying that Liverpool desperately wanted him before he made a move to Napoli.

“I knew that Liverpool wanted me badly and I knew they would return to the talks as I got that promise in January. It didn’t work out for them with Udinese at the end.
“Milan’s offer was dependent on the club’s takeover by Chinese investors. With Napoli, I knew the coach and lots of the lads from the team. I’m happy I came here.

Meanwhile, TalkSport have quoted Courtois as claiming that his quotes about Madrid have been misinterpreted.

“I said my heart was in Madrid, because I have my two children there, and it was misinterpreted. This situation is not easy for me.
“I still have a year on my contract [at Chelsea], I am happy and I can also extend. I do not forget that Chelsea has supported me since the beginning.
“I do not think Florentino Perez will call me, but he will call my agent who will listen to him.”
