  28/07/2012: Zapata keen to join Lazio
email print  
As Lazio's search for a defender continues, Columbian international Cristian Zapata has expressed his desire about a move to the Capital after his current club Villareal's relegation from La Liga.

The players agent said that "If Lazio called? At the moment we haven't had any contact from the biancocelesti's leadership but of course we would be delighted if someone was to call in the next few days and would seriously consider their proposal. Lazio is a big club, which plays in a big city, to which any footballer would love to wear the shirt".

Zapata's agent claimed that there has been interest from a number of European clubs, and La Lazio Siamo Noi report that Lazio are to approach the defender shortly. The 26 year old made 20 appearances for the Spanish club last term, and is no stranger to Serie A after spending a long period of his career with Udinese.
