Udinese defender Cristian Zapata is happy at the club for the time being, according to his agent, Massimo Italiani.

With Premier League side Arsenal thought to be lining up a bid for the Colombia international, Italiani has suggested Zapata would have to consider his options.

Speaking to calciomercato.com, he said:"He is happy at Udinese but, like any other player, he wants to improve and grow.

"If an offer from a big club arrives, then it will be taken into consideration. But for the time being there is nothing official, just rumours."

The 23-year-old made the move to Italy from Deportivo Cali in 2005 and impressed last term, making 29 Serie A appearances for the club.
