Fabio Aru will leave UAE Team Emirates after three years, but the Italian climber has still not found a new team for next season.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, there is now interest from Vini Zabù-KTM in Aru and Gianni Moscon (Ineos Grenadiers).
The Italian team sees two leaders leave this winter with Giovanni Visconti moving to Bardiani-CSF in next season and Luca Wackermann to EOLO-Kometa. This would have freed up space for Aru and Moscon.
Aru was previously linked with Alpecin-Fenix, but that rumour was firmly contradicted by the Belgian team.
The Sardinian won the Vuelta a España in 2015 and finished twice on the final podium of the Giro d’Italia, but Aru has slumped in recent years.
His last victory dates back to 2017, when he won the mountain stage to La Planche des Belles Filles in the Tour de France.
