Simone Zaza says that if Sassuolo are able to avoid relegation, he would like to stay with them next season.
The forward is co-owned with Juventus, who he managed to open the scoring against during Monday evening’s Serie A clash, which eventually went the way of the League leaders.
With that opening effort, the 22-year-old reopened discussion on his long-term future and if it involves the Old Lady.
“I’m glad to be a part of this team and now I am just focused on saving Sassuolo,” Zaza commented after yesterday’s game to Mediaset.
“If we were to remain in Serie A, then I would like to stay, but it does not depend only on me.
“We shall see what happens in the future. I have much self-belief, but at the moment, to take the place of Tevez, Llorente and the others is very difficult.
“I think I would do well to play another year to grow and to merit a shirt in the strongest squad in Italy.”
