Chelsea would reportedly be willing to part ways with left-back Emerson Palmieri for a fee of £26m during the summer transfer window.
Following the arrival of Ben Chilwell at Stamford Bridge, Emerson’s future at the club has been called into question on several occasions.
The 26-year-old has been linked with a move back to Serie A, where he turned out for Palermo and Roma before joining Chelsea in 2018, and Inter Milan are believed to have taken an interest in Emerson ahead of the new campaign.
According to Goal, Emerson is no longer in Frank Lampard‘s plans and the Blues will sanction a sale for the defender this summer, but they intend to make a profit having secured his signature for £17.6m two years ago.
Emerson has amassed 55 appearances for Chelsea across all competitions since his arrival, but the Italy international has failed to hold down a regular spot in the first XI and has just under two years left to run on his current deal.
Meanwhile, the Blues have allegedly wrapped up a deal for Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz, who will join Chilwell, Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr at Stamford Bridge for the 2020-21 campaign.
