Chelsea FC right-back Davide Zappacosta is already in Rome to complete a move to AS Roma according to pictures posted by the Serie A giants.
Zappacosta joined Chelsea from Torino in 2017 and has made 52 appearances for the club, scoring two goals and providing 4 assists but the presence of captain Cesar Azpilicueta has put the Italian to the bench at Stamford Bridge.
The Serie A club has more or less confirmed Zappacosta’s signing by posting pictures of him in the Italian capital on Twitter.
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.
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.
Should he sign, the defender will join Leonardo Spinazzola, Amadou Diawara, Pau Lopez and Mert Celtin as the new faces in the club and will hope he can be part of the squad when they open their Serie A campaign against Genoa on Sunday.
