Chelsea transfer news: Juventus eye out-of-favour left-back Emerson Palmieri

Juventus want to sign Chelsea left-back Emerson Palmieri, according to reports.

The Brazil-born Italy left-back has been restricted to cup games this season and rarely makes the Chelsea bench for Premier League matchdays.

Emerson is playing second fiddle to Marcos Alonso

Since joining from Roma for £17.6million 12 months ago, Emerson has failed to displace Marcos Alonso, who is a regular starter under boss Maurizio Sarri.

Italian outlet Calciomercato claim Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri is keen to add competition to Alex Sandro’s left-back spot.

And Emerson is high on the Serie A leaders’ wishlist.

His agent, Fernando Garcia, said: “I think all the top European clubs would like to have a player like Emerson Palmieri in their squad.

“There has been some interest, although nothing formal, so there is nothing to report now. I cannot talk about the clubs who approached us.”

Calciomercato also say Chelsea are interested in signing Juventus full-back Rogerio Oliveira, who is currently on loan at Sassuolo.

The 20-year-old Brazilian has made 19 Serie A appearances with Sassuolo 11th in the table.
