Inter Milan are in talks to sign Chelsea defender Davide Zappacosta, according to Sky in Italy.
The defender’s agent Alessandro Lucci has met with representatives from the Serie A club at their headquarters in Milan.
Sky Sports News understands Inter are keen to agree a deal for the 26-year-old, who arrived at Stamford Bridge from Torino on Deadline Day last summer.
Reports in Italy suggest Chelsea are looking to sell Zappacosta – who has a contract at the club until 2021 – for £17.5m, more than £5m less than they paid for him 12 months ago.
It is also thought that Chelsea could send the full-back out on loan with an option for Inter to buy him at the end of the season.
Zappacosta made 22 Premier League appearances for Chelsea last season, scoring one goal.
