Chelsea's summer clear-out is set to continue with two more players set for the exit in the coming days.
According to reports, the London club have reached an agreement with Italian side Atalanta over the sale of Davide Zappacosta.
The defender is deemed a surplus at Stamford Bridge and will move back to his country, where he will sign a four-year contract with the Italian outfit.
Davide Zappacosta will leave Chelsea on a permanent move. Agreement reached with Atalanta and done deal! Contract will be until June 2025 as per @DiMarzio. 🔵 #CFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) August 22, 2021
Ugbo to Genk [£5m on permanent move] and Bakayoko to AC Milan [loan] will be the next outgoings for Chelsea
The Blues are blessed with a good number of defenders, and Zappacosta, who was out on loan last season does not feature anywhere in coach Thomas Tuchel's plans.
Chelsea have also reached an agreement with Genk over the permanent sale of talent Ike Ugbo in a £5m deal.
The 22-year-old is expected to undergo his medicals with the Belgian outfit this coming week before signing under the dotted line.

Genk have already planned his medical for next week, as @Santi_J_FM confirmed.
In the meantime, the Blues are pushing for the signatures of French defender Jules Kounde.
