Simone Zaza‘s agent and father has revealed that his son could leave West Ham in January amid interest from Napoli and AC Milan after a less than successful start to life in the Premier League.
Zaza moved to the Hammers on loan from Juventus in the summer and has a clause in the deal that means West Ham must pay a permanent transfer fee upwards of £20m should the striker play a certain number of matches.
The 25-year-old has struggled to become a regular first team player for the Irons since his move and, despite featuring in seven league matches, is yet to score his first goal for the club.
Zaza’s issues have seen the Italian left on the bench in recent matches, with Michail Antonio starting up front, and the striker’s agent has now said they will be deciding in the coming days if his son should remain in East London.
Antonio Zaza told Calciomercato: “There are many situations to be analysed. I’ll be in London the day after tomorrow to meet my son and the club.
“It’s difficult to predict. I can’t ensure that he’s going to stay at the club until the end of the season, nor I can’t say that he’s definitely going to leave. We need to analyse the situation.”
