Piotr Zielinski has decided on his future, according to his agent - but they’re keeping it a secret.
Express Sport understands Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is a long-term admirer of the player and considered moving for him in January.
However, the German boss elected to wait and make a decision in the summer.
But the Reds have struggled to close a deal for the 22-year-old and have faced stiff competition from AC Milan.
Zielinski’s agent Bartolomej Bolek has now suggested that the player has decided where he will play football next season.
“I met owner Pozzo and spoke to Udinese today,” Bolek told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“We are trying to find the best solution both for the club and the player.
“We’ll see what happens next week.
“We know that many offers reached Udinese for Zielinski.
“We’re talking to Pozzo and the interested clubs.
“After the Euros he went on vacation, as he needed to rest after a long season.
“He will return to Udine on July 22 or 23.
“It’s true [that Liverpool have been tracking the player for a long time] but I don’t like to talk about negotiations in the papers.”
“We’ve decided, but it’s a secret.”
