Roma are keen on signing Davide Zappacosta from Chelsea in the summer transfer window, according to a recent report from an Italian media outlet Calciomercato.
Gianluca Petrachi is prepared to leave his post at Serie A side Torino to arrive at Stadio Olimpico at the end of June, and according to reports from the Italian media, the chief has set his sights on Chelsea right-back.
The Roma-bound chief signed Zappacosta throughout his time in Turin before the Blues swooped to land him while Antonio Conte was in charge.
However, the Italy international Davide has struggled to make his mark at Wests London, settling for a backup figure behind Victor Moses under Antonio and Cesar Azpilicueta under former manager Maurizio Sarri.
David was brilliant during his time with I Granata and is held in high esteem in his native Italy. This appears to have led to Giallorossi expressing an interest.
Calciomercato claims that AS Roma will pursue the versatile defender, but could face an uphill battle in tempting him away from Stamford Bridge considering Chelsea’s impending transfer ban.
Meanwhile, New Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte is prepared to allow Mauro Icardi to depart the club in order to land Chelsea loanee Alvaro Morata.
Conte is said to be interested in reuniting with the Spanish star once again following his appointment at Nerazzurri, and according to a British newspaper the Daily Mail via an Italian outlet, Corriere della Sera could look to agree on a swap deal with Atletico Madrid that sees Mauro move to the La Liga side.
