Davide Zappacosta has departed Chelsea to join Atalanta on a permanent transfer, both clubs have announced.
The 29-year-old defender joined the Blues in 2017 from Torino.
He has spent the past two seasons on loan in Serie A with Roma and Genoa.
Davide Zappacosta will now return to Atalanta, the club where he made his Serie A debut in the 2014-15 season.
Davide Zappacosta at Chelsea
The right-back signed for Chelsea in 2017, joining Antonio Conte’s side after impressing with Torino.
Zappacosta’s first campaign at Stamford Bridge was his most successful.
He made 35 appearances and ended with an FA Cup winner’s medal.
After he was used sparingly in 2018-19, Zappacosta moved to Roma on loan the following season.
But the defender suffered a serious knee injury that curtailed his season.
Last season, Zappacosta featured 25 times in Serie A with Genoa, scoring four goals.
