Simone Zaza’s agent has dismissed talk of a possible January transfer declaring that his client is “happy at Juventus”.

The 24-year-old striker is reportedly unhappy at his limited role at Juventus and it was even suggested he had handed in a transfer request.

However, following his goal against Hellas in the midweek fixture, both the player and his agent confirmed that his future lies in Turin.

“Simone knows how to be ready [to come off the bench],” Christian Maifredi told Tuttomercatoweb.

“It’s good that he’s in a prolific state of form. He’d like to play a bit more, but that’s normal for a footballer.

“The situation is positive, he’s hoping to play a bit more in the coming weeks. There are a lot of games, the first half of the season was a bit difficult for the team, but now Juventus are back up there.

“Hopefully he can find more space.

“Simone has been at Juve for six months, and has always done well on the pitch. He adapted right away, even if it’s never easy to go from Sassuolo to such a big team, one of the best in the world.

“A transfer? When a player does well it’s normal that he’ll attract the interest of clubs looking for certain characteristics.

“At the moment though Simone is happy at Juventus, maybe he’ll do even better.”

This follows on from the players own comments immediately after the game, when he confirmed his commitment to the club.

“I’m happy today I played and it went well,” Zaza told Sky Italia.

“I am convinced that Juve is the right team for me.”
