Now he is returning to Italy again – only this time permanently with Atalanta. Zappacosta can face their former club in the Champions League this season.

He will be the latest player out the door at Stamford Bridge this summer with Tammy Abraham, Marc Guehi and Olivier Giroud all retiring in recent months. They can be joined by Kurt Zouma before the transfer window closes as well, as he is a target for West Ham.
