Udinese agree deal for Zapata

French daily newspaper L’Equipe has learned that Udinese are set to complete the signing of Colombian striker Duvan Zapata from Napoli.

The Zebrette are set to pay €1.6 million for a two-year loan, whereas their league rivals will cover a bigger part of the player’s wage during the loan stint.

Zapata joins Udinese as part of the deal taking Brazilian midfielder Allan to Stadio San Paolo, and no doubt he will relish the opportunity to finally secure regular first team football.

The 24-year-old has been playing second fiddle to Gonzalo Higuain ever since he arrived from Estudiantes, and he has done pretty well every time he was called upon.

Zapata went on to score 11 goals in mere 12 Serie A starts, proving that he can successfully perform at the biggest stage, and he will now get the chance to nail down a regular starting berth and prove his parent club that he can score goals on regular basis.
