Zapata claims Arsenal interest
Friday 05 June 2009
Udinese defender Cristian Zapata claimed Arsenal are among the clubs interested in acquiring his services this summer.
The 22-year-old has made 17 league starts for Udinese this season and his performances for the Bianconeri have not gone unnoticed.
"Juventus, Fiorentina, Milan, Arsenal and Villarreal have requested information about me," said Zapata.
"There are many teams that are keen to sign me but an official offer has not been made so far.
"I think if a good offer arrives then Udinese will have to consider it.
"But the club don't need to sell me immediately."
Udinese reportedly turned down a £9.5m bid from Arsenal for Zapata last summer.
The Colombia international joined the Italian outfit in 2005 from home club Deportivo Cali.
He is under contract with Udinese until June 2013.
