West Ham linked with a move for Duvan Zapata

  West Ham linked with a move for Duvan Zapata West Ham and Southampton have reportedly expressed an interest in signing Colombia international Duvan Zapata. The striker, who plies his trade in Italy with Sampdoria, has been heavily tipped for a summer move and it seems interest is building ahead of next season. Zapata enjoyed a considerably impressive season for Sampdoria. He found the net on 11 occasions and also contributed with four assists. However, his efforts were not enough to land him a place in Colombia’s 23-man squad for the World Cup. West Ham are out to reinforce their striking options this summer and Zapata is the latest name to be linked by Italian outlet GazzaMercato, with Manuel Pellegrini getting his feet under the table at the London Stadium. However, it seems the Hammers will not be without competition in their apparent pursuit of Zapata. The report from GazzaMercato indicates that Premeir League rivals Southampton are also in the chase. Serie A side Atalanta are also touted as a potential destination, whilst Villarreal, too, are claimed to be keen on the player.

In July 1997, Glazer sold all of Zapata 's Bolivian and oil and gas properties to Tesoro Bolivia Petroleum Company, thereby eliminating all links to the company's past. His next move would determine the future course for Zapata .

Southampton are reportedly taking a look at Sampdoria’s Duvan Zapata, with the striker linked with a host of Premier League clubs.

The striker, who spent last season on loan at Sampdoria from Napoli with an obligation to buy at the end of the season, netted eleven times in Serie A, attracting interest from a host of other teams.

GazzaMercato report that Zapata remains a target for Atalanta, with a proposed swap deal for the Colombian not interesting Sampdoria. However, Villarreal, West Ham and Southampton are also interested in making a move for Zapata, with the player’s agent receiving calls from said clubs about a potential deal.

Southampton reportedly keen to land Jordan Lukaku

  Southampton reportedly keen to land Jordan Lukaku Southampton are chasing a deal for Lazio left-back Jordan Lukaku, according to claims from Italy. Two years ago, the Saints were linked with a move for the defender but no transfer ended up materialising, with Lazio having been keen to retain the services of their promising youngster. However, it seems Saints have revived their interest in the player. According to a report from the printed edition of Italian news outlet Il Tempo, as cited and translated by Sport Witness, Mark Hughes’ men have joined the race for Lukaku’s signature. The Belgian international endured a difficult season in Italy. He was used sparingly by Simone Inzaghi and if reports are to be believed, the player is keen to test himself in the Premier League. Southampton are well-stocked with options at left-back but have seen all of Ryan Bertrand, Matt Targett and Sam McQueen linked with moves away in recent months. Lukaku, 23, is predominantly a left-back but is capable of playing in a more advanced role on the flank.

Inter Milan have also tracked Zapata , a tall, quick and aggressive defender who can also play right back. Liverpool and Arsenal have previously been linked with Switzerland international Inler, 26. Manchester City will move for Real Madrid's Mateo Kovacic Liverpool's £53m move for Nabil Fekir

However, Saints could face the issue that West Ham did in 2013, when they tried to sign the striker.

West Ham failed to get a work permit for Zapata, meaning they were unable to complete the deal. West Ham owner David Gold told that Daily Star in 2013 that a lack of action for Colombia meant a deal for Zapata was off the cards.
