With the forward having only turned 30-years-old a few days ago, he still has plenty left in the tank, with a Premier League side involving themselves in the race to sign him easily justifiable.

As per Todo Fichajes, Arsenal, alongside Everton, Wolves and Leicester City, are all interested in signing Zapata, who could be on the move if Atalanta are offered €38M (£32.3M) in exchange.

Duvan Zapata is being linked with a possible transfer to Arsenal.

The report notes that, with Zapata’s contract expiring in 2023 and the player having no intention of signing an extension to that deal, a move away to the club looks like a foregone possibility.

Whether a Premier League move is on the cards, and whether that would be with Arsenal, Everton, Wolves or Leicester, remains to be seen. This is a race to keep an eye on.
