Udinese sign Colombian Zapata

Udinese have signed Colombian creative midfielder Alexis Zapata from Deportiva Envigado.

The Friulani are famous for finding talents all over the world at a very young age and have invested in this 19-year-old.

Zapata is a trequartista – so plays behind the strikers – and has been bought on a permanent basis from the Colombian club Deportiva Envigado.

Udinese were the first to bring Colombians Juan Cuadrado and Luis Muriel to Serie A, as well as Chilean Alexis Sanchez.
