Inter Milan are in talks to sign Davide Zappacosta from Chelsea FC this summer, according to reports in Italy.

Italian outlet Sky Sport Italia, as quoted by Sky Sports News, is reporting that the Serie A club are keen on bringing the defender to the San Siro this summer after just a year at Chelsea FC.

The same story says that Inter are keen to sign the 26-year-old, who arrived at Stamford Bridge from Italian side Torino last summer.

The article also claims that Chelsea FC could be willing to sell Zappacosta – who has a contract at the club until 2021 – for £17.5m, which is more than £5m less than they paid for him 12 months ago.

It is also suggested in the same story that Chelsea FC could send him out on loan to Inter Milan next season, with the option of making the deal permanent next year.

Chelsea FC are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they bid to try and build a squad capable of winning the Premier League title next season.

The Blues ended up in fifth place in the Premier League as they missed out on Champions League qualification, before winning the FA Cup.
