Zielinski is considered one of the best midfielders in the Serie A at the moment.

Pepe Reina

, former




player believes that


has the quality to play for Spanish giants



Real Madrid

. The Polish midfielder joined Napoli from Empoli in 2016.  Only forwards

Jose Callejon

(63) and

Lorenzo Insigne

(86) created more chances in Serie A last season for the club than


(53), while he completed more passes than any team-mate

Toni Kroos

is the only player in



Real Madrid

that has created more chances than the Poland International.

"I have a crush on Zielinski!" he told Cadena SER. "He's a Real Madrid or Barcelona player. He is out of the ordinary." 

Reina, who joined

Aston Villa

in the previous winter transfer window. His career lasted 20 years so far.

"The one with the most playing consistency is

De Gea

and it has to be that way, for me," Reina said.

"Luis Enrique has a choice of young goalkeepers or more expert, 38-year-old goalkeepers.

"David has experience that will for sure make him the most prepared.


[Arrizabalaga] is going through a worse time due to the signing of Mendy. There's also [Sergio] Asenjo, [Fernando] Pacheco... there are a lot of names.

"The culture in Spain is that a 38-year-old player is seen as much older than he is in Italy. Here, respect is different. In Spain, they see you as an older player."
