Arsenal ready to pay £15million to sign Serie A striker after holding talks over deal


Napoli striker Duvan Zapata is ready to leave the club to join Fiorentina, agent Fernando Schena has revealed.

The 25-year-old is looking for a new club after a successful campaign at Udinese on loan from the Partenopei.

"I met with Fiorentina a month ago," Schena is quoted as saying by

"I don't know if manager Paulo Sousa wants him for next season but I can confirm that he would be delighted to join the Viola.

"His fitness level? He's fit, his future depends on what Napoli decide to do [this summer]."

But Arsenal are ready to fight to sign the striker.

Last week, Udinese president Franco Soldati explained that Premier League runner-ups Arsenal have made an official offer for the Colombian, rumoured to be higher than £15million.

"There is a clause that allows Napoli to recall him early from the two-year loan," Soldati is quoted as saying by the Daily Star.

"He is very happy in Udine, his agent said that too and I hope he can remain with our jersey.

"He also received many offers from abroad, including from Arsenal."
