Chelsea could release Davide Zappacosta on loan with option to buy for €15m to Lazio, according to Il Messaggero newspaper.
Zappacosta has repeatedly been linked with a return to Serie A in recent months, including Inter, Juventus and Roma.
It’s reported Chelsea are now prepared to accept a loan deal with option to buy at the end of the season.
The total cost of the operation would be around €15m and Lazio are the new favourites.
However, they would first have to cut down the squad, with Martin Caceres close to Parma.
