Empoli are anxiously awaiting confirmation their transfer for Zenit defender Miha Mevlja went through in time.
According to Sky Sport Italia, the clubs were in full agreement and the paperwork signed, but the timing of the contract is proving to be an issue.
The matter is being investigated, but it’s possible the deal went through after the transfer deadline.
