Roma ready to bid for Chelsea fullback Davide Zappacosta

AS Roma are ready to bid for Chelsea fullback Davide Zappacosta.

Roma are in need of a new right-back signing this month after allowing Rick Karsdorp to return on-loan to Feyenoord this week.

Il Messaggero says Roma will seek to bring former Torino defender Zappacosta back to Italy.

Despite the Premier League transfer window now shut, Chelsea have informed Zappacosta he can leave.

The Blues are happy to allow the fullback to leave with plans to fast-track Reece James into the first team this season.
