Chelsea signs Torino defender Zappacosta

  • He is set to complete a £21million move to the Premier League champions on a four-year deal

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has been searching for cover for Victor Moses and he has moved to bring in Italy global Zappacosta, who can play at right-back, right wing-back or on the right of midfield.

The England midfielder, who joined the Foxes in 2012 from Manchester United, has won three England caps since making his global debut in March 2016.

Meanwhile, BT Sport pundit James Horncastle says the signing of the 25-year-old seems like a panic buy by the London club.

The second schedule will start in Mumbai soon and will shift to Dubai during which some crucial action episodes will be canned. Written and directed by Sujeeth , the film is produced by Vamsi and Pramod of UV Creations and will hit the screens next year.

Antonio Conte could yet add Danny Drinkwater to his squad as well. Although he has plied his trade as a right back, he is also able to play as a right midfielder - which should make his transition into a right wing-back much easier.

Chelsea have signed defender Davide Zappacosta from Torino on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Drinkwater becomes Chelsea's sixth first team signing this summer, joining Alvaro Morata, Antonio Rüdiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Willy Caballero and Davide Zappacosta. While the deal was late, it was clear that the signing was a choice of Conte's and Chelsea get a natural right-sided defender that can contribute going forward.

3 sickened by pet turtles
It said six people in the current outbreak reported buying turtles from a flea market or street vendor, or getting one as a gift. Nearly half of the 33 people interviewed by the CDC said they had come in contact with a turtle or its environment.

The Premier League champions moved quickly to secure Zappacosta, who received his first global call-up during Antonio Conte's spell as Italy coach, after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain rejected the chance to move to Stamford Bridge in favour of joining Liverpool.

The 25-year-old was a regular in Torino's starting line-ups after arriving from Atalanta in July 2015.

However, Drinkwater and Zappacosta should both prove to be good signings for Chelsea as they embark on their Champions League campaign, with both players excited to be along for the ride.
