Italian Serie A side Torino are looking at the possibility of re-signing him when the transfer window reopens in few weeks’ time.

This is according to renowned Italian transfer news calciomercato, Torino are exploring the idea of coming up with an offer to prise the 26-year-old away from Stamford Bridge.

The Italian international right-back signed for the Blues during last summer’s transfer window.

Chelsea paid £27m to secure his transfer from Torino.

Since his move, Davide Zappacosta has found it hard to break into the Chelsea team under former manager Antonio Conte and new boss Maurizio Sarri.

Zappacosta has only played six minutes of top-flight football for the Blues in the new campaign.

The attacking full-back has featured for Chelsea in five games in all competitions this season, providing two assists.

His goal contributions came during the 3-2 win over English Championship side Derby County in their Carabao Cup fourth round clash at Stamford Bridge last month.
