SERIE A - Atalanta make it on Zappacosta: Fiorentina beaten to the punch
Very close to join Fiorentina up until few days ago, 29-year old Italian right-back Davide Zappacosta is instead about to be signed by Atalanta. Playing for La Dea back in 2014/15, as his first top-tier campaign, former AS Roma, Genoa and Torino player is parting ways with Chelsea on a permanent move, and, once more, landing onto Serie A shores.
Previously linked to a bunch more clubs, including Inter Milan, AC Milan, Lazio, and Napoli, Zappacosta, who also capped 13 times for Italian senior national team, between 2016 and 2018, has been picked by Bergamo-based giants as a replacement for the long-term injured one Hans Hateboer. The player is undergoing medical tests sooner than later.
