Atalanta Enquire for Chelsea Full Back

Atalanta have reportedly inquired Chelsea regarding the availability of Italian full back David Zappacosta, who recently ended his loan term at Genoa. Before the 2020/21 season, Zappacosta played for Roma for a single season. The right back is on Atalanta’s book as the Bergamo club look to make some major changes ahead of the new season.

The 29-year-old is being eyed for a permanent transfer and his market value lies around the €10m mark – according to transfermarkt. He has just one more left on his Chelsea contract, which makes any further loan moves improbable.

According to Alfredo Pedulia, correspondent at La Gazzetta dello Sport, there have been concrete contacts between the two clubs. Fabrizio Romano has reported the same.

Additionally, Fiorentina and Genoa are also keeping an eye out on proceedings.

Zappacosta spent one season at Atalanta in 2014/15, making 30 appearances and scoring three goals in the process, before he was shipped to Turin.
