Chelsea yet to accept terms for transfer of €25m-rated defender to Euro giants after initial talks

Chelsea is reportedly yet to reach an agreement with Roma over a possible transfer deal for out-of-favour full-back Davide Zappacosta.

The Italy international has been connected with a come back to Serie A by the print edition of Il Tempo, as translated by Sport Witness, however, it looks like there’s some disagreement over the terms of the deal.

The report explains that Chelsea set an asking price of around €25million for Zappacosta, who has played fifty-two games for the Blues in two seasons with the club, though he only featured seventeen times in all competitions last term.

It now appears doubtless that Zappacosta is going to fall further down the pecking order under new Chelsea manager Frank Lampard, who has made it clear ahead of time that he’s probably to use a lot of homegrown players than his predecessors.

That could mean a role for exciting youngster Reece James, who caught the attention on loan at Wigan last season.

Il Tempo, via Sport Witness, doesn’t give that clear an indication of what the future holds for Zappacosta, however, with Roma keen on a loan deal, though CFC seems yet to accept the terms of that.

One imagines the 27-year-old defender will definitely be gone soon and Chelsea fans will in all probability be happy to move on and see James or other youngsters from the academy given a chance instead.
