Playing For Chelsea A Dream - Davide Zappacosta Completes Move

Antonio Conte is eager to complete the signing of the defender before the transfer deadline.

Conte had been looking to sign a right-sided player to compete with Victor Moses, and it appears that his search has ended with Zappacosta.

Welcome, Zappacosta! May you have a Chelsea career as prolific as Frank Zappa's musical productions and as prolific as Diego Costa's goals.

Chelsea have completed the signing of Davide Zappacosta, the full-back joining from Serie A side Torino for an undisclosed fee.

Apart from being a relentless worker, the 25-year-old is the typical Antonio Conte player and Chelsea have got a gem of a player as we edge closer to the transfer deadline.

Zappacosta, never played under the aforementioned Premier League-winning manager who called him up for Italy's friendly with Scotland in May 2016, but it's clear the Blues boss was determined to strengthen his defensive options. I am very excited to be here and start working with the team.

"I hope I can show my quality to the coach, my team-mates and the supporters", said Zappacosta.

He will join Davide Zappacosta who moved to Stamford Bridge from Torino.

Blues boss Antonio Conte has been chasing a new right wing-back all summer and he nearly landed Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Meanwhile, Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater is set to undergo a medical ahead of sealing his last-hour move to Chelsea.

Torino bought him from Atalanta in 2015 for £8million.
