As Piotr Zielinski sees his contract expire in 2024, it has been reported that Newcastle United are interested in a summer transfer for him.

Other suitors have not been identified, but it has been said that Eddie Howe and Co. are not the only ones interested in the Polish.

HITC Opinion: Zielinski would raise the technical level of the Magpies

One look at the current top two teams in the Premier League, Arsenal and Manchester City, is enough to tell that both are technically in a league of their own.

If Newcastle are to reach that level, they must do everything they can to secure a transfer for a player like Piotr Zielinski, who is technically competent.

Especially in the middle of the park, as Sean Longstaff and Joelinton can be improved from a technical point of view for the winger to further elevate and control games.
