Udinese confirmed Napoli can recall Duvan Zapata early and “he received many offers, including from Arsenal.”
The Colombia international spent this season in Udine, scoring eight goals in 25 Serie A games, but spent much of his time out injured after hip surgery.
“There is a clause that allows Napoli to recall him early from the two-year loan,” Udinese President Franco Soldati told Radio Kiss Kiss.
“He is very happy in Udine, his agent said that too and I hope he can remain with our jersey.
“He also received many offers from abroad, including from Arsenal. However, first we want Coach Beppe Iachini to get to know the team so they can make shared decisions.”
