Udinese defender Cristian Zapata is interesting Arsenal.

The Daly Mail says having lost defenders William Gallas and Mikael Silvestre and with Sol Campbell mulling over a move to either Celtic or Sunderland, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is also in the market for another centre-back despite the capture of Laurent Koscielny from Lorient for a fee close to £10m.

Udinese's 22-year-old Colombia international, Cristian Zapata, is understood to be Wenger's radar.
