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.
