Inter Milan are reportedly interested in signing Chelsea wing-back Davide Zappacosta.

Chelsea signed Zappacosta on transfer deadline day back in 2017, in a deal that Sky Sports reported to be worth £23M plus add-ons.

Despite a bright start to life at Stamford Bridge, Zappacosta was unable to displace Victor Moses and nail down the right-wing-back spot for himself. He was rotated in and out of Antonio Conte’s starting eleven, often used as an impact substitute late in games.

Zappacosta is not your archetypal full-back. If a new manager comes in and decides to switch to a back-four, he may find it difficult to transition back into a more reserved role.

The future is uncertain for the Italian in SW6, despite only being here a year. He could be set to be offered an escape route, according to reports in Italy.

Tuttosport report that Inter Milan are interested in signing Zappacosta. The Serie A side will propose an initial loan deal with an option to buy due to Chelsea’s presumably high asking price.

Would you be prepared to part with Zappacosta this summer, Blues? Or does he deserve another season to prove his worth? Let us know what you think in the comments.
