The Napoli forward, currently on loan at Atalanta, hasn’t been formally linked with a move to the Gunners, but admitted he could one day play in the Premier League.
Zapata has made 20 appearances in all competitions for the Serie A club this season, and has netted a staggering 10 in his past seven games.
In an interview with Il Corriere della Sera, Zapata revealed: “I used to support one team for each league. I liked Inter colours but I was in love with Thierry Henry’s Arsenal.
“In Colombia we love Premier League. Who knows. One day I could play there.”
Arsenal’s biggest problem this transfer window has been a lack of funds readily available for Unai Emery to utilise.
