Chelsea agree Zappacosta deal

He is set to complete a £21million move to the Premier League champions on a four-year deal

Chelsea have signed defender Davide Zappacosta from Torino on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Zappacosta is expected to provide competition for Victor Moses in the right-wing-back position at Stamford Bridge.

The 25-year-old Italy global left Rome's Ciampino airport on a private flight for London to undergo a medical early on Thursday.

Davide Zappacosta joins Chelsea from Torino FC.

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

Conte will be pleased to have acquired a player on deadline day when at one point it looked as if his frustrations were set to continue.

Fulmer looked like he might be hurt after throwing that pitch, and he was checked by the trainer before staying in the game. I think that one probably shocked me the most. "In this case, honesty was not the best policy", Wilson said.

Chelsea on Wednesday missed out on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who preferred a move to Liverpool.

Chelsea confirmed Drinkwater was their sixth and the last signing of the summer transfer window.

No precise details of the deal have been released by either club as yet but the Mirror claim Chelsea have paid Torino £23m for the 25-year-old right-back.

Conte gave Zappacosta his first call-up to the Italy squad during his time as national team coach.

"It was clear Alonso had had a very good season for Fiorentina and really fitted the brief of what Antonio Conte wanted".

But the Italian showed his support for the club earlier this year when he retweeted Chelsea's picture after they became Premier League Champions, possibly hinting to his hopes of joining the side.
