Chelsea defender Davide Zappacosta has touched down in Italy ahead of a transfer to Italian Serie A giants AS Roma.

After arriving in Italy to finalize his move to AS Roma, the Blues right-back said he’s back home.

Davide Zappacosta is expected to join Italian giants Roma on a season-long loan deal until next summer.

The loan move to AS Roma is necessary for the Italian international after he was told by new Chelsea manager Frank Lampard that he’s surplus to requirements.

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard as opted for Cesar Azpilicueta as the first choice right-back and Reece James as the second choice right-back.

Davide Zappacosta is back in Italy after spending two years at Stamford Bridge.

He was part of the Chelsea squad that won the 2017/18 FA Cup title under former manager Antonio Conte.

The Italian tactician was the Chelsea manager when Davide Zappacosta joined the club from Serie A outfit Torino.

He was also part of the team that won the Europa League in the last campaign after the 4-1 win over London rivals Arsenal.

Davide Zappacosta has not played for Frank Lampard this season after three games.

Chelsea have faced the likes of Manchester United (league), Liverpool (UEFA Super Cup) and Leicester City (league).
