Davide Zappacosta linked with Roma switch

Davide Zappacosta linked with Roma switch AS Roma are interested in signing Davide Zappacosta from Chelsea this summer, according to a report from Calciomercato. Gianluca Petrachi is set to leave his post at Torino to arrive at Stadio Olimpico at the end of the month, and according to claims from the Italian media, he has set his sights on the Blues right-back. The sporting director signed Zappacosta during his time in Turin before Chelsea swooped to sign him while Antonio Conte was in charge.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri spoke at a press conference following their 2-0 loss to Manchester United in the FA Cup fifth round. 'We need more agressivity, more determination' he said.

Chelsea will consider offers for defender Davide Zappacosta this summer, according to a report on Calcio Mercato.

The Italian news site states that Chelsea will entertain bids for the right back, who could be one of three Italians to leave the London club this summer after Maurizio Sarri departed for Juventus and Gianfranco Zola expecting to leave Stamford Bridge.

However, the defender has failed to force his way into the starting line up ahead of Caesar Azpilicueta and has been forced to play a bit-part role, making just 26 Premier League appearances.

Now it seems Chelsea are ready to cut their losses with Zappacosta and move him on ahead of the 2019/20 campaign, despite a transfer ban meaning they won’t be able to replace him in the squad with a new signing.

The 13-time Italian international has been linked with a move back to his homeland, with AS Roma said to be interested.

Chelsea to demand at least £30m for Zouma.
Chelsea will not let Kurt Zouma leave the club for anything less than £30 million, according to a report from BBC Sport. The Frenchman has emerged as a top target for Everton this summer after he impressed during a season-long loan spell at Goodison Park under Marco Silva last term. Zouma moved away from West London in an attempt to secure regular game time in the Premier League and struck up a strong partnership with Michael Keane at the back for the Toffees.
