Simone Zaza has had no talks with Fiorentina talks, with only Valencia making contact with the striker over a move there this month and Patrice Evra is also reportedly heading towards the Mestalla.

Juventus have admitted they are in advanced negotiations with Valencia to send the two players on loan, with rumours that Zaza could join the Viola if they sell Nikola Kalinic to Chinese side Tianjin Quanjian.

“[Fiorentina sporting director Pantaleo] Corvino has never contacted me for Simone,” Zaza’s father and representative told the JuveNews website. “In general no Italian clubs have approached him. The only genuine contact we’ve had is with Valencia, who showed great interest.”
