SCFC Links: Simone Zaza
Simone Zaza is more than just a transfer link plucked out of a hat.
The Juventus forward actually visited Clayton Wood earlier this year to have a look around the complex, with talks taking place to discuss what Stoke could offer him.
Zaza is a quick player and, combined with his 6ft plus frame, is a good target man.
But he shouldn’t be tagged as just a target man- he also can play off another striker, using his pace to get in behind. It’s those qualities and versatility that have prompted Antonio Conte to name Zaza in Italy’s Euro 2016 squad.
His aerial ability combined with the vision and crossing abilities of the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri could be a devastating combination.
Zaza would come at a price though, having only moved to the Old Lady for €18 million last summer.
His goal scoring record is nothing to be sniffed at- scoring 58 goals in 156 games- and I’m sure he’d be a great addition were he to join.
