Cagliari ‘monitoring’ Zaza

Simone Zaza is being linked with a move away from Valencia despite only joining the club permanently earlier this summer.

Sardinian newspaper L’Unione Sarda reports the 26-year-old’s situation is being monitored by Cagliari who are looking to replace Marco Borriello, who joined newly-promoted Serie A side Spal.

Zaza netted the only goal of the game as Valencia made a winning start to their La Liga campaign at home to Las Palmas on Friday evening.

It appears unlikely the club would be willing to sanction a sale so promptly after his sale and following on from Alvaro Negredo’s move to Besiktas.

After an unhappy stint at West Ham, the Italy international moved to Los Che on an initial loan deal from Juventus in January for €2m with the obligatory €16m purchase completed last month.
