Chelsea brings in Zabbacosta from Torino on Transfer Deadline day.


Davide Zappacosta has jetted into west London for a medical after completing a £23m move to Chelsea on Deadline day after completion of paperwork.

Italian side, Torino confirmed that the Defender has joined the blues and wishes him well ahead of his time at Chelsea.

Zappacosta is a player that Antonio Conte knows well, having handed the 25-year-old his first place in an Italy squad in 2016 during the manager’s spell in charge of the national side.

He now becomes the 14th new face at Stamford Bridge this transfer window, with the highest-profile signings including Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger.

He has to date made four appearances for the Azzurri, making his debut shortly after Conte left for Chelsea in a World Cup qualifier against Liechtenstein.
