Udinese will sign Francesco Zampano on loan from Pescara with option to buy for €2m, as his medical is tomorrow.
Sportitalia and Sky Sport Italia both report with confidence that the deal has been agreed.
The 24-year-old right-back spent time at Sampdoria, Virtus Entella, Verona and Juve Stabia before joining Pescara in 2014.
So far this season, Zampano has provided six assists in 13 games for Pescara between Serie B and the Coppa Italia.
This is only one part of a synergy between the two clubs, as Udinese are also expected to lend Svante Ingelsson to the Delfini, while bringing back midfielder Mamadou Coulibaly early from his 12-month loan.
