Drinkwater joins from Leicester in a deal worth £35million
While ex-Torino defender Zappacosta has been handed the No.21 jersey for the season.
The pair both joined Chelsea late yesterday evening for a combined £58million.
And they could have been joined by a few more players too, with Everton playmaker Ross Barkley pulling an outrageous U-turn DURING his Stamford Bridge medical.
Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain snubbed the Premier League champions in favour of a move to Liverpool.
While Tottenham pinched striker Fernando Llorente from Swansea right under Antonio Conte’s nose.
However, Drinkwater and Zappacosta should both prove to be good signings for Chelsea as they embark on their Champions League campaign, with both players excited to be along for the ride.
Torino defender Zappacosta costs £25m
Everton playmaker Ross Barkley rejected a move to Chelsea DURING his medical
Drinkwater said: “I’m delighted to be a Chelsea player and can’t wait to get started.
“It has been a long journey to get here but I am very happy and am looking forward to helping the club win more trophies.”
Zappacosta added: “It is a dream for me to join Chelsea and play in the Premier League.
“I am very excited to be here and start working with the team. I hope I can show my quality to the coach, my team-mates and the supporters.”
