Serie A giants AS Roma have posted pictures of Chelsea right-back Davide Zappacosta in Rome ahead of a transfer to the Giallorossi.
Zappacosta joined Chelsea from Torino in 2017 and has since made 52 appearances for the club, scoring two goals and providing 4 assists. Due to the presence of Cesar Azpilicueta, the 27-year-old has struggled for game time at Stamford Bridge.

Zappacosta was linked to a move to Roma with Gianluca DI Marzio claiming on Twitter that he will have a medical at the club.

With skipper Azpilicueta and youngster Reece James in the squad, it would’ve been exceedingly hard for the Italian international to find first-team opportunities under Frank Lampard this season. Hence, Zappacosta’s move to Roma could well give him some more game time which might help his cause of finding a spot in Italy’s Euro 2020 squad.
