Inter Milan remain untroubled in their pursuit of Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski in spit of the Saudi Arabian threat.
The Poland international is currently running on an expiring contract, a situation that has alarmed several suitors in Italy and abroad.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport via FcInterNews, the Nerazzurri have a verbal agreement with the player over a summer transfer.
The Pink newspaper believes that Zielinski has agreed to join Inter on a free transfer in June. He would sign a four-year contract worth 4.5 million euros per season as net wages.
But as the source tells it, suitors from the Saudi Pro League are still monitoring the situation.
The 29-year-old had received offers from the Gulf nation last summer but opted to remain in Naples.
The report expects him to do likewise in the face of January offers. In other words, Zielinski would prefer to stay at the Maradona Stadium till the end of the season rather than entertain Saudi proposals.
Therefore, Inter remain confident as they expect the midfielder to keep his word and eventually put pen to paper.
Inter Milan Remain Confident In Signing Piotr Zielinski In The Summer
The source adds that Juventus had also tried to test the waters, contacting the player’s agent. However, the Bianconeri failed to make a breakthrough.
Hence, the Nerazzurri remain in the lead for Zielinski’s services, even if they know that anything could ensue on the market between now and June.
The Pole has been plying his trade in Italy since signing for Udinese in 2011. He made his breakthrough while on loan at Empoli and then signed for Napoli in 2016.
This season, he has recorded three goals and as many assists in 23 appearances across all competitions for the Partenopei.
