Deal Close: Euro Giants Set to Complete Signing of €28m Chelsea Star

Serie A giants Inter Milan have reportedly identified Chelsea defender Davide Zappacosta as a potential target in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Italy international defender has only joined the Blues from Torino last season. However, he struggled to earn a regular spot under Antonio Conte and was limited to just 12 starts in the Premier League.

Conte’s own future at Chelsea remains uncertain, and Tuttosport claims that the manager’s position is also raising doubts over Italian full-back’s long-term future at Stamford Bridge.

Serie A giants Inter Milan are reportedly interested in the Italy international and would hope to take him at San Siro on a season-long loan deal, with an option to buy at the end contract.

The 26-year-old would likely command a high transfer fee should he join permanently this summer, having only spent one season following his €28m (£24.7m) transfer to Chelsea.

The 2017/18Premier League champions would hope to recoup the vast majority of that fee, although that price tag is likely to drop after Italian defender’s one year spell.
