Juventus will only sanction a new loan deal for West Ham United misfit Simone Zaza elsewhere if the suitor is willing to put a clause stating he must be purchased for €15-20m (£12.7m – £17m) next summer, Calcio Mercato report.

The Italy international has not scored for the Hammers in eight Premier League games and with the return to fitness of both Andy Carroll and Andre Ayew, the former Sassuolo man is being linked with a move away from the London Stadium in January.

A host of potential destinations for Zaza have been coined in the European press, with the striker likely to join another team on loan for the rest of the season.

However, the latest report suggests that Juventus want to offload the centre forward next summer and as such a clause in the deal stipulating the fee for a potential permanent transfer must also be stipulated.

Struggling La Liga side Valencia are the team most-frequently linked with Zaza, with the Mestalla outfit under the stewardship of the striker’s compatriot Cesare Prandelli.
