CHELSEA DEFENDER ATTRACTING SERIOUS INTEREST FROM ITALY

CHELSEA DEFENDER ATTRACTING SERIOUS INTEREST FROM ITALY

Chelsea defender Emerson Palmieri is one man who has Ben making transfer headlines this summer and it does not look like it will stop anytime soon. The Italian left-back is a major target for some of the best clubs in the Italian Serie A, with AS Roma, Napoli, and Inter Milan all monitoring his current situation at Stamford Bridge as they all get ready to table an official offer for him. Palmieri had a decent spell with the Italian national team at the Euros and he also played a role in the final as he helped his country secure a win over England to emerge as the Champions of Europe.

Chelsea are ready to listen to offers for the defender and the player himself would also want to secure a move away from Stamford Bridge as he is currently the third option in the pecking order, behind Ben Chilwell and Marcos Alonso. Inter Milan have already lost two full-backs in this summer’s transfer window after seeing Ashley Young leave for English club Watford and Achraf Hakimi sealing his big-money move to French Ligue 1 heavyweights Paris Saint-Germain just some days ago.

They now wish to sign Emerson as a cover in defense and if they complete the deal, he is expected to walk straight into the starting eleven. However, they are facing some serious competition from Napoli and Roma who also both want to sign defensive reinforcements this summer. New Roma boss José Mourinho is an admirer of Emerson and wants to link up with the player in Rome, but Napoli are also in the picture and it looks like the winner will have to be decided by who bids the highest.

Napoli do have a second option, as they may turn to Matheus Oliveira, Getafe’s 23-year-old defender if they fail to land Emerson, 26.
