According to a report published by Italian media outlet Sky Sport Italia, Serie A club Atalanta are interested in securing the services of Chelsea’s Italian full-back Davide Zappacosta and are trying to secure a loan deal for the out-of-favour Blues defender.
Chelsea are looking to revamp their squad this season and have been one of the most active clubs in the transfer market.
Frank Lampard is making big strides in his quest to make Chelsea a European superpower and is willing to part ways with Davide Zappacosta.
Atalanta have exceeded expectations this season and the revolutionary tactics of Gian Piero Gasperini have done wonders for the Italian side.
Davide Zappacosta has made a name for himself in the Serie A in the past and could build on his reputation in the league should he decide to move away from Chelsea this season.
Frank Lampard taking an all-out approach to his squad revamp at Chelsea, Davide Zappacosta is unlikely to remain with the west London club.
Davide Zappacosta was brought to Chelsea by former Blues manager Antonio Conte in 2017 and made a positive start to his life in the Premier League but a combination of injuries and a string of bad performances severely hampered his career with Chelsea.
The former Torino right-back fell out of favour at the club and was loaned to Serie A giants AS Roma last season.
Chelsea have seemingly moved on from Davide Zappacosta and are looking to build a fresh squad under the pragmatic Frank Lampard.
The former Chelsea midfielder has flexed his club’s financial muscle in the transfer window and will also bring defensive reinforcements into the club.
