The Italian right-back will earn around €2,500,000-per-year in wages as he has signed a four-year deal at Stamford Bridge.
Antonio Conte is a huge fan of Davide Zappacosta, who was selected in Italy’s 23-man squad for the Euros in 2016, a few months before the manager joined Chelsea.
“It is a dream for me to join Chelsea and play in the Premier League – Zappacosta said – I am very excited to be here and start working with the team. I hope I can show my quality to the coach, my team-mates and the supporters”.
