Fulham considering an approach for Atalanta striker Duvan Zapata as a potential replacement for Aleksandar Mitrovic. Zapata had been set to join Roma after the Giallorossi entered into talks for the Colombian international, but the two clubs failed to reach an agreement for the transfer.
Sky Sports now report that Zapata is high on Fulham’s list of striker options to take over from Mitro, as they look to complete the move before deadline day next week.
Atalanta had signed Malian striker El Bilal Toure to lead their line this season, but the 21-year-old has been ruled out for several months with a serious muscle injury.
La Dea coach Gian Piero Gasperini insisted that he would not stand in the way of Zapata or teammate Luis Muriel if either player decides to leave the club this summer.
