Emerson: 'I could return to Serie A'

Emerson Palmieri discusses his career at Roma and Chelsea, working with Antonio Conte, Luciano Spalletti, Maurizio Sarri and Frank Lampard. ‘A return to Serie A could happen.’

The 25-year-old was born and raised in Brazil, but moved to Palermo in 2014 and decided to represent Italy at international level.

“I was very happy in Serie A, including with the culture, which is also why I chose to play for Italy,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

Juve eye Jorginho and Emerson

Juventus are reportedly in talks with Chelsea for both Jorginho and Emerson Palmieri, with Miralem Pjanic going the other way, but it depends on Barcelona.

According to Tuttosport, the Bianconeri have asked Chelsea for the double deal so that Maurizio Sarri can reunite with players who know his system well.

Pjanic is known to be on the way out, to be replaced by a midfielder who is more functional to the fast-passing style of the new tactician.

A straight swap would be entirely possible, with Pjanic and Jorginho both valued in the region of €40m.

Jorginho closer to Juve, Pjanic for Barcelona

Reports are gathering steam that Maurizio Sarri wants a reunion with Chelsea midfielder Jorginho at Juventus, as Miralem Pjanic is closer to Barcelona.

The Italy international has said he wants to continue winning over the fans who had been dubious about him at Stamford Bridge, but a return to Serie A would also be tempting.

He worked with Sarri at Napoli, following him to Chelsea, and would seem to be a natural replacement for Pjanic, who has struggled to get to grips with the tactician’s approach.

Juventus ask Chelsea for Emerson

Juventus are still trying to get Chelsea to lower their €25-30m asking price for Italy international full-back Emerson Palmieri.

According to Calciomercato.com, the Bianconeri are working with Chelsea to cut down the asking price, which is currently at €25-30m.

The negotiations will continue at the end of this season.

Inter look to Alonso or Palmieri

Inter are planning to sign one of Emerson Palmieri or Marcos Alonso this summer, according to Tuttosport.

The Nerazzurri started out the season with Kwadwo Asamoah and Antonio Candreva as regular wing backs in Antonio Conte’s 3-5-2 system.

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.

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.”
