Napoli approach Zaza?

Juventus confirmed Simone Zaza needs to leave Turin, so Napoli are back in the running along with West Ham, Wolfsburg and Milan.

“We spoke to Zaza. The transfer is not a punishment, but he would undoubtedly find more space elsewhere,” Juve director Beppe Marotta told Mediaset Premium today.

“There was the Wolfsburg idea, but it all fell apart. Over the final 10 days of the transfer window, we’ve got all the time to find him a new club.”

West Ham United are also interested, while the Wolfsburg talks could in theory be re-opened before deadline day.

Zaza has said he wants to remain in Serie A, so Telelombardia claims Napoli are getting ready to bring him in as a replacement for Juve-bound Gonzalo Higuain.

In so doing, they’d also sell Manolo Gabbiadini for around €30m.

Milan have never disguised their interest in Zaza, but that would mean releasing one of their current forwards, most likely Luiz Adriano.
