Chelsea put breaks on Zappacosta's move to Lazio

Chelsea have stalled Davide Zappacosta's move to Lazio.

The fullback has agreed personal terms with the Romans about a return to Italy.

But Sportitalia says Chelsea are holding up the move.

That is because they do not want to let him leave on loan with an option to buy, preferring something more definitive.

Negotiations will continue and the Aquile are confident of striking a deal during the January transfer window.
