Official: Valencia buy Zaza

Valencia have announced the signing of striker Simone Zaza on a permanent basis from Juventus.

Zaza’s loan to Valencia in January included a purchase option, reportedly set at €16m plus €2m in add-ons, which Los Che have now activated.

“Simone Zaza will be a Valencia CF player from July 1, through to June 2021, according to the terms signed with Juventus,” read a statement on the club’s official website.

The Italian has put a miserable Euro 2016 and spell at West Ham United behind him, scoring four goals in 14 La Liga appearances, among them a wonder strike against Real Madrid and a brace at Granada on Sunday.
