Chelsea have reportedly set the asking price for Davide Zappacosta as they continue to try and raise cash in the hope of signing Erling Haaland.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Zappacosta is valued at €12m (£10.3m) by the Blues.

Inter Milan are said to be intrigued by the Italian, considering he can play on either side of defence or at wing-back.

The 29-year-old was on loan with Genoa last term and Roma the year before that, so he is well accustomed to Serie A.

In fact, he left Torino to join Chelsea in 2017 for £23m (Sky Sports).

He’s played just 52 times since his switch to Stamford Bridge, yet is currently undergoing pre-season training with Thomas Tuchel’s team.

 

Evidently, his stock has decreased somewhat in the four years he’s been a Blue.

However, the club will take any money they can get right now if they want to buy Haaland.

Selling Marc Guehi, Fikayo Tomori, Victor Moses and Olivier Giroud has certainly raised some profit.

Ike Ugbo is also seemingly close to a move to Genk, whilst Tammy Abraham could well be sold for £40m (Telegraph).

Tally together these figures, plus potentially Zappacosta’s departure and Chelsea will be on their way to the £150m (90min) needed for Borussia Dortmund’s no.9.
