Davide Zappacosta Arrives for Roma Medical Ahead of Season-Long Loan From Chelsea

Published

on

​Chelsea defender Davide Zappacosta has arrived at Roma to undergo a medical ahead of sealing a season-long loan to the Serie A side.

First-team opportunities have been hard to come by for the Italian since his move from Torino in 2017, and he has failed to even make the bench in either of Chelsea’s Premier League matches this season.

As a result, he was eager to leave the club on loan, and Roma have confirmed on ​Twitter that he has now arrived at the club for a medical.

There has been no confirmation of whether the deal will include an option for Roma to sign Zappacosta permanently next summer, with several reports coming up with conflicting information.

Goal’s ​Nizaar Kinsella states that the ​Serie A side wanted an option to buy after declining to meet ​Chelsea’s £23m asking price this summer, and the Blues are said to have accepted their demands in the hope of getting Zappacosta off their books at the end of the season.

Many Chelsea fans won’t be too disappointed to see the back of Zappacosta, given the Italian has failed to make an impact at Stamford Bridge. Club captain ​Cesar Azpilicueta has retained his place in the lineup, despite his recent struggles.

Barcelona have appointed Ronald Koeman as their next coach, the club said in a statement on Wednesday, as the Catalans look to rebuild after their 8-2 thrashing by Bayern Munich in the Champions League last week.

Koeman, who has left his role as manager of the Netherlands, has signed a two-year-deal with Barcelona, who sacked Quique Setien on Monday after he presided over the club’s worst defeat ever in European competition.

Koeman, who will be officially presented at the Camp Nou stadium later on Wednesday, is dearly loved at Barca for his role in Johan Cruyff’s hugely successful side known as the ‘Dream Team’ and for scoring the goal that delivered the club’s first ever European Cup in 1992.

The defender later became the club’s assistant coach before embarking on a career as a head coach, managing Dutch sides Ajax Amsterdam, PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord plus Premier League sides Southampton and Everton and La Liga’s Valencia.

“Barcelona and Ronald Koeman have come to an agreement for him to be the team’s coach until 30 June 2022,” said Barca’s statement.

“A club legend and Barca’s hero at Wembley who gave fans their first European Cup, Koeman is coming back to the Camp Nou. But this time he will be in the dugout to lead the team.”
