Sportskeeda's take on the EPL transfer rumours of 16th July
Sane heading to the Premier League? Costa heading out? All you need to know about the high-profile rumours.
Over the last few days, we’ve been analyzing some of the best transfer rumours doing the rounds. Premier League clubs are expected to break some transfer records this summer, and that means more players getting linked to them.
Today, we talk about the future of Piotr Zielinski, Diego Costa, and Leroy Sane. We have done an in-depth analysis on the English Premier League transfer rumours of 16th July.
Piotr Zielinski to Liverpool
Polish midfielder Piotr Zielinski’s agent, Bartolomej Bolek, has confirmed to Gazzetta dello Sport that Liverpool are interested in signing the player. The Udinese star is also wanted by AC Milan and Napoli.
Experts say: Melissa Reddy of Goal, yesterday, claimed Zielinski is now expected to sign for AC Milan, after Liverpool found it very difficult to conclude a deal with Udinese.
Our take: Melissa Reddy is quite reliable on Liverpool transfer rumours, but she is also the club’s mouthpiece. Liverpool seemed very confident about signing Zielinski till now, and it’s really difficult to understand what went wrong. Klopp has constantly talked about signing the right players, and if Zielinski was identified to do the job then why are Liverpool reluctant to pay a little bit extra. We believe this could still go either way, and won’t certainly be surprised if there are more twists.
Chances of it happening: 5/10
