Long-term Chelsea transfer target Duvan Zapata has opened up and told the London giants that he is very interested in making a move to the Premier League one day.
Fourth in Serie A but with teams around them holding games in hand, Atalanta are facing a fight for Champions League qualification this season, which could prove to be significant.
If they fail to qualify for that Champions League place, then they may need to cash in on a number of first team players to help clear some of their debt that they have racked up, just like every club, during the outbreak of Covid-19
The 30-year-old has registered 14 goals and 12 assists for Atalanta this season, and has been touted as a cheaper alternative to Erling Haaland for Chelsea or an extra attacking option for Liverpool.
When asked about a possible summer move, Zapata told the Gazzetta dello Sportt: “My future in the Premier League? Never say never in football.
“When I was a kid, I was always watching the Premier League – I was an Arsenal fan! I got up early every weekend to watch their games.
“I was in love with Thierry Henry’s Arsenal. In Colombia, we love the Premier League. Who knows, one day I could play there.”
There has been no doubt that Zapata has been very impressive for the Italians this season, but if we are looking to add another attacker/striker to the squad in the coming transfer windows that will add 2-30 goals a season, he is not there man.
So even though he is open to the Premier League, we would be very shocked to see him make that big money move to sign with the club.
