Napoli star’s agent dismisses Tottenham transfer talk

first_img1 Napoli star Duvan Zapata has dashed Tottenham’s hopes of landing his signature and insists he wants to stay in Serie A.The Colombian striker had been linked with a move to White Hart Lane in January, but it now looks certain the 23-year-old will fight for his place under former Liverpool and Chelsea boss Rafael Benitez at the Stadio San Paolo.Zapata scored a last-gasp equaliser for the Italian side against Sampdoria this week and his agent, Fernando Schena, has confirmed his client wants to stay at the club – despite not featuring regularly in the first-team this term.He said: “He hasn’t found his best form because he isn’t playing very much.“He wants to stay at Napoli through January, then in June we will decide his future based on our communication with the club.“We have not received offers within Italy, he really trusts the manager and is certain he’ll have more playing time going forward.”Zapata signed for Napoli from Estudiantes in 2013 and has made nine appearances this season, scoring twice.
