Zuniga hints at January exit

Napoli full-back Juan Camilo Zuniga has all but suggested that he will be leaving Stadio San Paolo in the winter.

The Colombian has found himself on the fringes in Naples, and he hasn’t even made the match squad for any of the games this season.

Having been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona not so long ago, the 29-year-old has seen his stock fall in a short period of time and the winter exit now seems likely.

It is believed that Fiorentina are keen on his signature, with Zuniga desperate to secure regular playing time as soon as possible.

“I have no injuries and I train regularly, but I am not part of the technical project of the club and it is not really clear why,” the full-back explained in an interview with Colombian daily El Tiempo.

“I have spoken to sporting director Giuntoli. We are both waiting for the January transfer window, but to be sold I have to play and prove that I am fit, otherwise it will be difficult (for Napoli) to sell.”

Due to numerous injuries, Zuniga had only made 13 league appearances in two years under Rafael Benitez, but he has since suffered a new low.

Despite impressing at the 2015 Copa America, the highly rated footballer was deemed surplus to requirements at Stadio San Paolo, with his six-year spell now drawing to a close.
