Valencia sporting director Jose Ramon Alesanco has revealed the club are hoping to sign Simone Zaza on a permanent basis from West Ham when the transfer window reopens in the summer.
“No matter what, he is a part of Valencia,” he told FourFourTwo.
“After this half a season, he’ll have four more years at Valencia and we have to get the best performance out of him.
“We hope he scores lots of goals and makes us happy in every match.”
Zaza has made 19 appearances during this season, scoring 2 goals.
