Udinese defender Cristian Zapata hints that he will be making a move to Anfield.

Udinese defender Cristian Zapata has hinted that he may be making a move to Anfield shortly.

The Colombian international has also attracted interest from Manchester City, Arsenal and Bayern Munich, but Liverpool appears to be his favourite destination.

The 24-year-old, currently in Colombia preparing for next month’s Copa America, told La FM: “I do not know what to say. I can say that I am very close to Liverpool. At the end of the Copa America, we will see what happens with my future.

“I have gained experience [with Udinese] but the time has come for me to make the jump to a big team.”

Zapata has two years left on his contract with the Serie A outfit.

Kenny Dalglish last week made Jordan Henderson his first signing as permanent manager.
