Zappa to Roma, Santon to Mallorca

Chelsea right-back Davide Zappacosta has reportedly agreed to join Roma on loan, with Davide Santon set for Real Mallorca.

Santon looked to be headed for SPAL or Real Sociedad, but Gianluca Di Marzio’s website writes he is now ‘very close’ to Mallorca, who recently returned to La Liga after a six-year absence.

In turn, Di Marzio writes the Giallorossi are about to take Zappacosta on a dry loan for the season.

The Italy international was signed at the request of Antonio Conte in 2017 but struggled under Maurizio Sarri and is not in Frank Lampard’s plans.

He could be at Villa Stuart clinic as early as tomorrow for a medical with the Lupi.
