Chelsea signs Torino defender Zappacosta

Davide Zappacosta of Torino is on his way to London to complete a move to Chelsea

The Italy worldwide emerged as a surprise target for the Blues on transfer deadline day, with Goal confirming Antonio Conte's interest. Drinkwater departs from Leicester City for a reported fee of £35m, joining up with former teammate N'Golo Kante in Chelsea's midfield.

Drinkwater will wear the No.6 shirt at Stamford Bridge, while ex-Torino defender Zappacosta has been handed the No.21 jersey for the season.

Antonio Conte could yet add Danny Drinkwater to his squad as well.

Davide Zappacosta has completed his £23 million move to Chelsea from Torino, penning a four-year contract. The deal has now been completed and he is a Chelsea player.

The 25-year-old wing-back is expected to arrive West London Thursday to finalise the move, after agreeing in principle with the Blues. "I hope I can show my quality to the coach, my team-mates and the supporters", the 25-year-old told his new club's official website.

The £23m signing has agreed on a 4-year-deal after playing 58 games in the Serie A over 2 seasons for the Italian club.

He also said it was "a dream for me to join Chelsea" after his deal was finalised.

Technical director Michael Emenalo added: "Davide is a player of global calibre who Antonio Conte knows well and we have been aware of for some time".
