According to reports making the round, Arsenal are ready to sign Napoli striker Duvan Zapata who has scored eight goals in 25 Serie A appearances last season.
Arsene Wenger is reportedly in search of a striker to replace injured Danny Welbeck who has been ruled out for nine months.
Udinese president Franco Soldati claims the 25-year-old Colombian international has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal.
Udinese president Franco Soldati claims Arsene Wenger is interested in the 25-year-old striker.
“There is a clause that allows Napoli to recall him early from the two-year loan,” Soldati toldRadio Kiss Kiss.
“He is very happy in Udine, his agent said that too and I hope he can remain with our jersey.
“He also received many offers from abroad, including from Arsenal. However, first we want coach Beppe Iachini to get to know the team so they can make shared decisions.”
The Colombian international is valued at around the £7 million mark and looks to be a decent coup should Wenger acquire him.
In my own opinion I would rather see a Morata or Huguian make the switch to the Emirates.
