Juventus and Inter interested in Emerson Palmieri

Juventus and Inter are interested in signing Emerson Palmieri but have yet to make an official bid for the Chelsea full-back, according to his agent.

The 25-year-old has struggled for regular first-team football this season after failing to dislodge Cesar Azpilicueta at left-back, while the emergence of youngsters Fikayo Tomori and Reece James has further restricted his opportunities on the opposite flank.

He has made just 16 starts in all competitions and has not featured at all since the clash with Arsenal on January 21, when his error allowed Gabriel Martinelli to score in the 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.

He was also hauled off after just 34 minutes of the reverse meeting at Emirates Stadium in December after a poor start saw the Blues go a goal down.

That has inevitably led to speculation about Emerson’s long-term future in west London.

His agent, Luis Fernando Garcia, has now confirmed interest from Italy in his services, though he also insists that the defender, who has two and a half years left on his contract, is going to wait until the end of the season before deciding his future.
