Chelsea fullback Zappacosta on brink of moving to Roma

Chelsea fullback Davide Zappacosta is on the brink of moving to Roma.

The Mirror says Zappacosta looks set to return to Italy on a season-long loan from Chelsea.

The 27-year-old joined the Blues from Torino two summers ago, but he's now closing in on a move to Roma having fallen down the pecking order under Frank Lampard.

The new Blues boss has picked Cesar Azpilicueta at right-back during his brief Stamford Bridge tenure thus far, with youngster Reece James acting as his understudy.
