January Transfer market

by -

Despite having three more years on his contract with Chelsea, defender Davide Zappacosta has not excluded the chance he could go back to Italy, especially if he doesn’t find enough space in the starting XI under new manager Maurizio Sarri.

Could I return to Italy? Yes, Inter had been after me,” Zappacosta revealed. “My agent Alessandro Lucci had told me about their interest, although I’ve always remained focused on Chelsea”.

Now, the summer transfer window is closed, so Inter Milan or any other team could try to sign the Blues’ wing-back in January: “Could I return in January? I have three more years on my contract here and I only want to think about doing well with Chelsea”. Zappacosta went on. “There’s a lot of competition here, but I want to win a place in the team. After that, it’s clear that if I didn’t find much room, I don’t think any player would like that.”

Arsenal will make a bid of €45 million for one time Chelsea target Mauro Icardi.

Inter Milan will allow their prized asset to go should a club offer enough money and, according to Corriere dello Sport, title chasing Arsenal will do just that.

Reports suggest Inter would even be willing to sell the Argentine in the upcoming January transfer market but that appears unlikely as Roberto Macini’s side currently sit top of the Serie A table, two points clear of 2nd placed Napoli. The departure of Icardi would severely damage their title ambitions.

Icardi has been of interest to Chelsea since January last year when there was fervent speculation the Blues may lure him away from the San Siro. As Chelsea have played so badly for much of this season they may revisit the idea of signing the 22-year-old.
