Lazio linked with a move for Davide Zappacosta

Lazio linked with a move for Davide Zappacosta Chelsea defender Davide Zappacosta has reportedly emerged as a target for Serie A giants Lazio. Ahead of the January transfer window, the Italian international is said by Calciomercato to have been lined up for a return to his homeland, with Simone Inzaghi’s side the latest to be linked with a swoop. The Blues completed the signing of Zappacosta at the end of the 2017 summer transfer window as they paid an initial fee of £23 million to Torino. Since his arrival at Stamford Bridge, though, he has been utilised only as a deputy option by Antonio Conte and Maurizio Sarri respectively, with Victor Moses and Cesar Azpilicueta generally preferred on the right-hand side of the defence. The 26-year-old has started all four of Chelsea’s Europa League group stage matches this season but has made only one Premier League appearance from the bench. Zappacosta will certainly be assessing his future ahead of the upcoming transfer window as first-team football continues to prove hard to come by.

Chelsea defender Davide Zappacosta has reportedly emerged as a target for Serie A giants Lazio . Ahead of the January transfer window, the Italian Zappacosta will certainly be assessing his future ahead of the upcoming transfer window as first-team football continues to prove hard to come by.

Calcio Mercato claim Lazio are preparing to make a loan offer for Chelsea defender Davide Zappacosta.

The full-back has found first-team football hard to come by under Maurizio Sarri, having made just two Premier League appearances so far this season – both from the substitutes bench.

Despite being an important part of the Blues’ Europa League campaign, the 26-year-old may be shipped out by Sarri in order to give a chance to a younger full-back, who may be recalled from a loan spell of his own to fill the gap.

Zappacosta arrived at Chelsea prior to the 2017-18 season, signing a contract that will keep him at Stamford Bridge until 2021.

Arsenal preparing £44 million offer for Cengiz Under

Arsenal preparing £44 million offer for Cengiz Under Arsenal boss Unai Emery is reportedly preparing a January bid for Roma winger Cengiz Under, according to the Daily Star, cited by Sky Sports. With Danny Welbeck recently suffering a long-term injury and youngster Reiss Nelson on a season-long loan to Hoffenheim, Emery has a lack of options out wide and is looking at the £44 million rated youngster as a potential signing in the New Year. Under, 21, has started the current campaign in fine form, finding the back of the net on three occasions and has also provided five assists in 14 games in Serie A this season. However, as a result of Under’s impressive start to the season, officials at the Stadio Olimpico are adamant they will not sell the winger in January unless an astronomical offer is made. The Gunners will have to act fast if they wish to nab the Turkish international when the window opens in January, with reports suggesting Premier League rivals Manchester City and Tottenham are also monitoring the 21-year-old’s situation.

Davide Zappacosta (born 11 June 1992) is an Italian professional footballer who plays as a right back for Premier League club Chelsea and the Italian national team. Born in Sora, Lazio , Zappacosta joined hometown's Sora's youth setup in 1998, aged six, as a forward.

Arriving from Torino, the West Londoners coughed up €28 million in a base fee for the Sora-native, excluding various bonuses.

The Italian national could make the move back to his home nation after a short stint in England, although it seems unlikely he’d leave on a permanent basis.
