Lampard: 'Giroud could leave'

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard admits Olivier Giroud could join Inter this month. “If it’s right for everybody, then we’ll look at whether he can leave the club.”

Giroud has been linked with Inter for a number of weeks, given boss Antonio Conte is desperate for more strikers to ease the pressure on Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez.

The Frenchman is believed to want out of Chelsea as he looks to secure more first team football, with Euro 2020 on the horizon.

Inter are on red alert after manager Frank Lampard confirmed Olivier Giroud could leave Chelsea in the January transfer window.

Juve look at Emerson Palmieri?

Juventus are reportedly interested in buying Chelsea left-back Emerson Palmieri next summer, claims Tuttosport.

The Old Lady have struggled for cover in the position this season when first team regular Alex Sandro has been out injured, so the Turin-based newspaper suggests sporting director Fabio Paratici is looking at Chelsea left-back Emerson as a solution.

The 25-year-old, who is a naturalised Italian of Brazil origin, has been out of favour under Frank Lampard this season, and the Turin daily reports that Juve are keeping tabs on his situation.

How Jorginho won Chelsea over

Jorginho’s football was too much of a change for Chelsea fans, but Football Italia Chief Correspondent Richard Hall saw Calcio’s Puccini win over the Wagnerian Premier League.

Not everybody who likes Puccini also appreciates Wagner. Either way, the music still takes form. In Naples, the masses would tell you tales of the beautiful, rhythmic and delicate touches that Jorginho used to distribute. Since he has gone, ask any Neapolitan and they will poetically remember a master craftsman, a conductor to an orchestra they once adored.
