The agent of Udinese defender Cristian Zapata isn't surprise by the interest of Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho.

"I'm not surprised that some teams could think of him when it comes to strengthening their defence," Massimo Italia noted.

"Cristian has been playing in Serie A for five years now and people in the game know all about his quality.

"Mourinho's interest? No, I don't know anything about that. However, it is clear that any interest from big clubs is very pleasing."

And should a side come in with an offer in the New Year, Italia concedes that a switch could occur.

"January is the month for transfers," he continued. "As always, anything can happen."
