Simone Zaza is being linked with a return to Italian football, with Cagliari said to be interested.
The Valencia forward has been suggested as a possible replacement for Marco Borriello, who left the Sardinian side to join newly-promoted SPAL.
According to local newspaper L’Unione Sarda, Napoli’s Leonardo Pavoletti remains the favourite to bolster the Rossoblu’s striking options.
However, with a deal with the Partenopei yet to be finalised, Cagliari President Tommaso Giulini is said to be monitoring Zaza’s situation in Spain.
Cagliari began their Serie A campaign with an expected defeat at Juventus yesterday evening, going down 3-0 in Turin.
