Newcastle Set to Join Race for Atalanta Marksman Duvan Zapata

With approximately two weeks remaining within the winter transfer window, Newcastle are eager to continue their spending spree this month as they are set to launch a hefty offer for Atalanta’s marksman, Duván Zapata.

According to Sky Italia, The Magpies are planning to submit an immense €31M offer to La Dea for the Colombian international striker. Despite the fact that Zapata is currently entering the back-end of his career, the club officials firmly believe that the 30 year-old attacking powerhouse can play a pivotal role in bringing success within England.

Throughout this year’s campaign, Zapata has been in remarkable form as the Colombian international has managed to score 12 goals and provide seven assists in 22 games played across all competitions for the black and blue of Bergamo.

With his contract with La Dea set to expire in the summer of 2023, Newcastle are eager to make an audacious attempt in signing the 30 year-old striker as they strongly believe that Zapata will fit seamlessly within their roster through his incredible speed and movement within the final third, his brilliant hold-up play with the help of his incredible physique, and his remarkable goal-scoring ability.
