In similar manner to the 2016 summer transfer window, Chelsea have gone completely under the radar to strike a deal for an Italy-based full-back on deadline day.

Chelsea have signed midfielder Danny Drinkwater from Leicester on a five-year contract, the Premier League champions have announced.

Drinkwater played a big role in Leicester's incredible title-winning campaign of 2015/16.

Chelsea completed the signing of Davide Zappacosta, with the defender having joined from Serie A side Torino for an undisclosed fee.

"I'm delighted to be a Chelsea player and can't wait to get started". After Kante's move to Chelsea last season, where he won PFA Player of the Year, Drinkwater has followed his former teammate's footsteps.

Two of the missiles failed in flight and the third blew up "almost immediately", said a spokesman for US Pacific Command. The missiles were launched from Kittaeryong, in North Korea's eastern Kangwon province.

"I hope I can show my quality to the coach, my team-mates and the supporters", said Zappacosta.

The Premier League champions have turned their attentions to Zappacosta after losing out to Liverpool in the race for Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

No precise details of the deal have been released by either club as yet but the Mirror claim Chelsea have paid Torino £23m for the 25-year-old right-back.

He now becomes the 14th new face at Stamford Bridge this transfer window, with the highest-profile signings including Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger. He has signed a four-year deal with Chelsea, according to the club's website.
