Arsenal are looking to make a big statement of intent with the £57m signing of Napoli star Piotr Zielinski.

Liverpool are also interested in the midfielder but the Gunners are ready to steal a march on their Premier League rivals by activating the €65m (£57m) clause.

Zielinski has been in good form this season and has attracted the attention of a number of top clubs.

The Mirror reports that Jurgen Klopp was also keen on the midfielder before he joined the Partenopei from Udinese and could move again, despite the signing of Naby Keita.

With Emre Can potentially leaving on a free, the Reds will also be in the market for another centre-midfielder.

Arsenal consider Zielinski an essential signing, report Corriere dello Mezzogiorno, despite no replacement already set for Arsene Wenger.
