Juventus in new Udinese talks for Zapata

Juventus have made fresh contact with Udinese for defender Cristian Zapata.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Juve have returned to the negotiating table for the Colombia international as talks stall over a deal for Stuttgart stopper Fernando Meira.

The stumbling block for Juve is Udinese's £15 million valuation for 20 year-old Zapata. The Turin giants remain confident, however, after completing the signing of Vincenzo Iaquinta from Udinese earlier this summer.
