West Ham have told Simone Zaza he can leave the club in January.
Simone Zaza joined the club on loan from Juventus in August and West Ham have decided not to take up the option of making the move permanent.
West Ham paid £5m to take Simone Zaza on loan from the Serie A champions Juventus, with the deal automatically becoming a long-term one, at a cost of a further £20m, if he made a set number of Premier League appearances for the club this season. Having made 11 in all competitions and failed to score, the London club look set to cut their losses.
Juvenews reported that Morabito said: “Zaza will definitely go back to Juve, because West Ham do not want to keep him. He could well stay in Turin, given that Juventus might need another striker. If not, there are plenty of other options.”
Zaza’s agent says other clubs – including Valencia – are interested in signing him.
