Chelsea make €25m bid for Serie A defender

Chelsea make €25m bid for Serie A defender

Renowned for his attacking play and pinpoint delivery, Zappacosta was snapped up by Antonio Conte's side in a late £25million deadline day deal.

The 25-year-old former Torino player has four caps for Italy, but has not featured in the squad since March.

Davide Zappacosta, on the other hand, was a name which emerged from out of the blue and Chelsea have parted with a fee of around £23m to secure the Torino right-back's signature.

Italy have called up Davide Zappacosta to bolster their defensive options for Tuesday's World Cup qualifier against Israel.

Italy's current head coach, Gian Piero Ventura was Zappacosta's coach at Torino for two years so he should know how to best utilize the new kid on the Chelsea wing-back block.

'It is a dream for me to join Chelsea and play in the Premier League.

Chelsea boss Conte has been in the market for a right-sided player this summer, with bids being rejected for Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Bayern Munich's Rafinha. "We are very pleased to be able to bring him to the club and believe he will become an important member of the squad".

Watching him at Stamford Bridge will be his girlfriend, Morena Urzini.

Chelsea continue their negotiations to add Leicester City's Danny Drinkwater after their most recent £32m offer for the midfielder.
