Cristian Zapata is of transfer interest to clubs in Italy following Villarreal’s relegation, his agent has confirmed.
“We are talking to a number of clubs in and outside of Italy,” representative Massimo Italiani told calcionews24.com.
“We’ve had a number of talks already, but it is too soon to make a decision. After all, we can’t do anything until a club reaches an agreement with Villarreal.
“The only certainty is that he will leave. We’re disappointed by the situation he finds himself in, but there are no alternatives.
“Serie A is a championship that Zapata knows well, but his future will depend on what kind of concrete offers arrive.”
Bayern Munich are also said to be interested in the centre-back.
