Napoli closing in on Estudiantes forward
Serie B champions Sassuolo already have some documents signed by the 22-year-old Colombia international and intend to send them through to the player’s Argentine club, but the Partenopei have reportedly made a better offer for the player.
However, speaking to Diagonales.com, the Buenos Aires club’s president Gerardo Villadeamigo expressed his desire to sell the player to Napoli.
“We hope to be able to close the deal with Napoli today,” he stated.
Zapata has managed 24 goals in 48 matches for Argentine club Estudiantes since making the move from America de Cali in 2011.
