'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Peterborough Enquire About Million Pound Zola

Peterborough United have admitted that they were interested in Crewe striker Calvin Zola but were put off by the 1million price tag.

Rumours of Posh's interest first surfaced a few weeks ago but were dug back up by the Daily Mirror in the week. According to the Mirror, Peterborough were planning a 250,000 swoop for the Congo striker who has 13 goals to his name so far this season.

Peterborough's 'Director of Football' however says reports are wide of the mark after a initial enquiry was abruptly ended once Fry had learnt of Zola's price tag.

Fry told peterboroughtoday.co.uk: 'We have made some enquiries and Zola is a player we asked about.

'I spoke to Dario Gradi at Crewe to see whether they were willing to sell and what the price would be. He told me 1 million so I wished him good luck for the rest of the season and put the phone down!'


It's unlikely anyone will be willing to shell out a million quid for Zola, who is now in a 5 game goal drought, which can only be good news for the Alex. His presence up front - with or without goals - arguably makes him the most important player in the Alex team at the moment.
