Valencia might make another attempt to sign Simone Zaza in January, according to sporting director Jesus Garcia Pitarch.
Zaza is on a season-long loan at West Ham from Juventus with an option to buy, but he is yet to impress for the Hammers.
Garcia Pitarch told Superdeporte how he tried to sign Zaza in the summer, and is keen to make a move again.
“Basically the biggest challenge is that the salary that he has at West Ham is absolutely exorbitant, but that could be negotiated,” he said.
“I don’t know what the coach thinks about this, but if we could reduce his wages, he is a player that we can evaluate.”
Zaza arrived on a season-long deal from Juventus during the summer but is still yet to score in 11 outings for West Ham.
