Duvan Zapata is being chased by Arsenal, according to Udinese president Franco Soldati.
The Colombian striker is midway through a two-year loan deal at Udinese, having arrived from Napoli last July.
The Bianconeri are keen to keep hold of the 25-year-old but Napoli have an option to recall him this summer.
And Soldati fears they may do just that before selling him on, with Zapata attracting interest from a host of clubs, including the Gunners.
“There is a clause that allows Napoli to recall him early from the two-year loan,” he told Radio Kiss Kiss.
“He is very happy in Udine, his agent said that too and I hope he can remain with our jersey.
“He also received many offers from abroad, including from Arsenal. However, first we want Coach Beppe Iachini to get to know the team so they can make shared decisions.”
