Udinese defender Zapata excited by Man City transfer rumours

Udinese defender Cristian Zapata is excited by the prospect of moving to England.

The Colombia international has been linked with a £15 million move to Manchester City.

And despite interest also from Inter Milan, Zapata's agent, Massimo Italiani, admitted to Calciomercatoweb.it: "I also read about City.

"Today I have not had any contact with anybody, but I am not surprised that he is linked with big clubs.

"Cristian is fascinated by the Premier League, it has been a dream since he was a child."

Zapata has also been a long-term target for Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.
