The Italia international returned to his country with a loan move to Atalanta, although the Serie A side retains a buy option in his deal, Valencia are considering a move to cut short his stay at the club.
The 28-year-old has only made one substitute appearance for La Dea as the club is unlikely to activate his buy option.
On the other side, according to AS, Los Che are rumored to be in the market for new faces this January transfer market as
will be restricted to loan moves, and as a result, the club are considering bringing
back to the Estadio Mestalla as a low-cost squad cover option for the remainder of the season.
