Chelsea done deal: Blues confirm Davide Zappacosta switch from Torino

Posted September 01, 2017

Chelsea then confirmed the 25-year-old Zappacosta signed a four-year contract, becoming Chelsea's fifth signing of a hard summer transfer window.

Zappacosta, who has made four global appearances for his country, joined Torino from Atalanta in 2015, where he has since featured in 58 Serie A games. The 25-year-old Italian global is reportedly already on his way to London for his medical.

The 25-year-old Italian right-back had earlier agreed a £23m transfer, as reported by Sky Sports, which will see him reunite with former Italian national team manager Antonio Conte.

Davide Zappacosta has completed his £23 million move to Chelsea from Torino, penning a four-year contract. And just like Alonso, he is yet another unexpected purchase from the Serie A who seems to have the potential to grow into a useful member of the squad.

Antonio Conte could yet add Danny Drinkwater to his squad as well.

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

After facing setbacks in the recent days of the transfer window, Chelsea are set to complete a couple of signings on the deadline day.

That's after the Blues missed out on signing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal; he moved to Liverpool on Thursday despite the Blues agreeing a fee with Arsenal, per BBC Sport.
