Arsenal transfer boost with Duvan Zapata open to Prem move from Atalanta after becoming boyhood fan back in Colombia

ARSENAL fans may be able to dream of the club landing Duvan Zapata after the striker opened the door to a Premier League move.

The Atalanta star, 30, has been a Serie A mainstay since signing for Napoli in 2013.

But a move to England could be on the cards after he revealed his love for watching Prem matches while growing up in Colombia.

And Arsenal’s interest may well be piqued by his past Gooner tendencies.

When asked by La Gazzetta dello Sport about a switch to England, Zapata replied: “In football, never say never.

“As a boy in Colombia, the Premier League was shown the most.

“I supported Arsenal and woke up early on the weekend to watch their games on TV.”

Zapata has hit 14 goals for Atalanta this season as the Bergamo club continue their impressive assault on the Champions League.

Knocked out in the last-16 by Real Madrid, La Dea sit fourth in Serie A and will contest the Coppa Italia final in May.

Inter Milan are ten points ahead and six clear of second-placed AC Milan, with a game in hand.

And Zapata fired a barb at the Nerazzurri, insisting that their dominant form has been a result of their early exit from European competition.

Asked whether Inter are the best team in Italy, he noted: “Honestly, not for me.

“They won but they suffered against us, like all the times they have faced us. Results do not always reflect each team’s merits.

“I believe that Inter are first because they have had more time to work on the fine details, after being eliminated in Europe.”
