Chelsea have completed the signing of Italian full-back Davide Zappacosta in a late deadline day deal to help strengthen the squad ahead of what promise to be a challenging few months for the reigning Premier League champions. Drinkwater departs from Leicester City for a reported fee of £35m, joining up with former teammate N'Golo Kante in Chelsea's midfield.

Those formalities have been concluded as Chelsea announced on Chelseafc.com a short time ago that Zappacosta has joined the clubs on a four-year contract. The deal has now been completed and he is a Chelsea player.
