Chelse announce Davide Zappacosta

The 25-year-old will bolster Chelsea’s defensive option for the next four-years.

The Blues from London have completed the singing of fullback Davide Zappacosta from Torino. The Italian international put pen to a four-year contract in a £23million deal.

The signing was secured minutes before the end of the close-season and the defender was more delighted to complete the switch from the Serie A to the Premier League.

“It is a dream for me to join Chelsea and play in the Premier League.” Zappacosta said to ChelseaFC.com

“I am very excited to be here and start working with the team.

“I hope I can show my quality to the coach, my team-mates and the supporters.”

Meanwhile Chelsea’s technical director Michael Emenalo added: “Davide is a player of international calibre who Antonio Conte knows well and we have been aware of for some time.”
