Fiorentina add Chelsea defender to summer transfer plans

Italian side Fiorentina has reportedly added Chelsea defender Davide Zappacosta to their summer transfer plans.

That’s according to a recent report from Sky Sports Italy, who claims the Italian full-back is wanted by manager Giuseppe Lachini.

Zappacosta, 29, joined Chelsea in 2017 following a £22.5m move from Torino.

Despite arriving in London tipped to become one of the league’s most exciting attacking full-backs, Zappacosta’s time in the country’s capital has largely been disappointing.

Loaned out to Roma for the 2019-20 season only to come back and be shipped back off to Italy to join Genoa, the 29-year-old’s time at Stamford Bridge certainly appears to be over.

Although the Italian enjoyed a decent campaign last time out, directly contributing to six goals in 25 appearances, in all competitions, it is widely accepted that the defender will move on, in a permanent deal, later this summer.
