Duvan Zapata: West Ham failed with late push to sign Atalanta striker on loan on Deadline Day

West Ham failed in a late bid to sign Atalanta striker Duvan Zapata on Deadline Day.

It is understood the club submitted a deal sheet to the Premier League, but failed to get the transfer over the line for the Colombia international.

The Hammers’ interest in Zapata dates back to at least 2013, when he played for Estudiantes in Argentina.


Zapata was wanted by Newcastle as well, but the North East club were also unable to complete a deal.

West Ham finished the transfer window without bringing in any new arrivals, despite attempts to sign Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard, Benfica’s Darwin Nunez, Leeds’ Raphinha and Reims teenager Hugo Ekitike.

After loads of transfer speculation linking Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard with a move away from Old Trafford, take a look at his best goals in the Premier League.

United’s board decided to keep Lingard, who is out of contract at the end of the season, despite Ralf Rangnick giving his blessing for the midfielder to leave on Monday amid interest from West Ham and Newcastle.

Lingard, whose contract expires in the summer, was keen to move before the window closed on Monday night.
