Emerson wants to ‘run away’ from Chelsea

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Emerson Palmieri wants to ‘run away’ from Chelsea, and a Serie A return is on the cards.

The former Roma defender has only played two Premier League games so far this season, and according to La Gazzetta dello Sport he wants to “run away” from Chelsea” at the end of the campaign.

Emerson praised new Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel earlier in April but admitted his future at Chelsea is in doubt.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter are considering a summer move for the 26-year-old in the summer as his contract expires in 2022.

However, the Nerazzurri are not the only Serie A club interested in welcoming his services.

Juventus are also being linked with signing the Italy international with Calciomercato.com reporting the Old Lady could offer Alex Sandro a swap deal with the Blues.

Emerson is a long-time Juventus target, and the Old Lady came close to signing him from Roma in 2017 before he picked a severe knee injury.

According to different reports in Italy, Napoli have also set their sights on the former Roma man.

Mario Rui has recently signed a contract extension with the club, but Faouzi Ghoulam will remain out of action for several months with a knee injury, while Elseid Hysaj will leave the Azzurri at the end of his contract in June.
