I would prefer to play for Juventus than Milan, admits Zaza

The 22-year-old freely admits he grew up supporting the Rossoneri but says he would jump at the chance to sign for the Scudetto winners
Sampdoria striker Simone Zaza has revealed he would relish the opportunity to join Italian champions Juventus at the expense of AC Milan.

The 22-year-old has courted the interest from some of Italy's finest clubs recently following a successful spell on-loan with Serie B outfit Ascoli last season, in which he netted 18 times in 36 appearances.

And speaking to Tuttosport, he admitted he has harboured a lifelong affinity for the Rossoneri, but says the prospect of joining the Bianconeri would prove too good an opportunity to decline.

"Since I was a child I have always supported AC Milan, but it would be very hard to say no to Juve," he said.

"I have read that Napoli have made an offer for me, but Juventus would be my first choice.

"If I went to the Bianconeri and was loaned out to another club, I would still be happy, but I would like to stay and prove I'm good enough for the first team."
