Emerson to miss two Italy games

Chelsea have confirmed Italy international left-back Emerson Palmieri will be out for at least four weeks, missing two Euro 2020 qualifiers.

The Brazil-born former Roma player limped off during the Premier League game with Liverpool at the weekend.

“Emerson now won't be back until the other side of the international break,” explained Chelsea manager Frank Lampard.

“It will be a few weeks because it is the recurrence of an injury, so we have to be a bit careful with it.”

Emerson injury for Italy

Chelsea left-back Emerson Palmieri limped off just eight minutes into Italy’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Finland.

The Brazil-born player sprinted half the length of the field to chase down Teemu Pukki and limit a dangerous counter-attack.

He pulled up at the end of the run and immediately asked to come off.

Alessandro Florenzi replaced Emerson as a makeshift left-back, as the Italy injury crisis intensifies.

Chelsea work on Emerson renewal

Chelsea are reportedly ready to give Italy international Emerson Palmieri a pay rise after a strong start to the season.

Emerson has broken through as Chelsea’s first-choice left-back under Frank Lampard, while he started Italy’s 3-1 win in Armenia on Thursday.

With that in mind, Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira claims the Blues have opened contract talks with the 25-year-old.

Although his current deal does not expire until 2022, Schira writes the London club want to extend it by a further year.

Sarri calls Emerson to Juventus

Maurizio Sarri could be reunited with his Chelsea left-back Emerson Palmieri if he replaces Max Allegri at Juventus, with Alex Sandro on the way out.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, the Bianconeri look set to appoint Sarri as their new Coach, and he would prefer to work with the Brazilian-born Italy international if Alex Sandro is sold.

The 24-year-old joined the Blues from Roma in January 2018 for €20m and played 27 times in all competitions this season.
