Chelsea’s Zappacosta the backup option for Atalanta as agent fees stall Rick Karsdorp deal

Sky Sport Italia report tonight that Atalanta are ready to turn their attention towards Chelsea right-back Davide Zappacosta, with a deal for Roma defender Rick Karsdorp potentially proving difficult as a result of a sticking point over agent fees.

Although the Dutchman was seemingly set to become the now-Leicester man Timothy Castagne’s replacement, there is a possibility that talks could collapse. In this scenario, the backup option for La Dea would be Zappacosta, who spent last season on loan in the capital and is also being looked at by Fiorentina.
