According to CalcioMercarto, Juventus sent scouts to watch Everton take West Ham on at Goodison Park on Sunday in a bid to check up on the progress of their on-loan Hammers striker Simone Zaza.
The game finished 2-0 with Zaza only managing to come on from the bench in the second half and our resident Hammers fans here in the Transfer Tavern reckon the Turin side’s onlookers won’t have been impressed with what they saw from their man.
The Italian forward has been on loan at the London Stadium since the start of this season but has failed to find the net so far.
He is said to have a clause in his contract, though, that should he make a certain number of appearances for the Hammers, they will then have the option to buy him at a pre-agreed price.
