Levante attempt Italian striker deal after failing to sign Loic RemyJanuary 30, 2018
Levante have made an initial offer for Hellas Verona striker Giampaolo Pazzini, according to Mundo Deportivo.
The Valencian based side have been keen to improve their attacking options and have moved to sign the Italian striker on a six month loan deal after failing to lure Loic Remy to the club.
Officials from the Valencian club made an offer to Las Palmas last weekend for Remy after he was deemed surplus to requirements by new boss Paco Jemez, skipping training after the winter break.
However, they saw their advances rejected and the Frenchman join La Liga rivals Getafe instead over the weekend.
Pazzini, who currently plays for Hellas Verona, has scored four goals in 20 appearances for the Serie A side but would seemingly be open to a January switch with Mundo Deportivo claiming an gentleman’s agreement is already in place.
Having joined Verona in 2015, the former Italy international has experience of playing for Inter Milan and AC Milan, scoring 172 career goal in total but he has never played outside of his country of birth.
A move for Pazzini would be highly welcomed as Levante currently sit just above the relegation places, having scored 18 goals in their 21 league games this season.
