Davide Zappacosta joined Chelsea from Torino at the end of the summer transfer window and has been a deputy to first choice right wing-back Victor Moses.
The 25-year-old already has 24 Chelsea appearances to his name and has admitted he’s happy with life in London.
“I’m absolutely settled here,” he told the official Chelsea website.
“In my experience so far I have learned a lot during training and in the matches because my team-mates are great players who help you to improve in all aspects.
“I am also happy with my life here in London. Even though I have a pretty quiet life I like it here. I have met lots of Italians in the area where I live, in the restaurants, shops and so on, and so I have to say that I am very happy.”
