Liverpool are interested in and have made contact with Poland international Piotr Zielinski, the midfielder has been quoted as saying.

It was reported last month the Reds were set to hold talks over the prospective signing of Zielinski, the 21-year-old who is on loan at Empoli from Udinese.

And on Monday he was quoted by Polish media outlet Sportowe Fakty as saying: "There is a lot of truth in (talk of) the interest of (Liverpool boss) Jurgen Klopp in me.

"There was contact, I do not deny that."

Zielinski, on loan at Empoli last season as well as this, on Sunday scored in their 2-0 Serie A victory over Fiorentina.

He has 13 caps for Poland and is set to be part of their squad for Euro 2016.
