Chelsea outcast Emerson Palmieri wanted by Juventus in short-term transfer with Ben Chilwell now Lampard’s first choice

JUVENTUS are reportedly looking to bring Chelsea misfit Emerson Palmieri to the Allianz Arena in a short-term deal.

The transfer would initially be a loan move, but the Italian club are chasing a purchase option in the deal.

Juve see Emerson as a potential replacement for left-back Mattia De Sciglio, according to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

De Sciglio was left out of Juve's 3-0 win over Sampdoria with boss Andrea Pirlo preferring youngster Gianluca Frabotta.

But Fabrotta, 21, is considered to be too inexperienced, and their other left-back Alex Sandro is still injured, so they need a solution as soon as possible.

Emerson, 26, has fallen out of favour at Chelsea in recent times, and has been replaced in the team by new signing Ben Chilwell.

He joined them in January 2018 for a fee of £17.5million from Roma, but has since played just 55 times for the Blues.

He was left out of Frank Lampard’s squad for Chelsea’s 3-1 victory against Brighton, and has played just two minutes of Premier League football since the lockdown began.

Despite his lack of playing time, he is sill a wanted man and has also caught the attention of West Ham and Inter Milan.

It has been reported that Hammers boss David Moyes wants to sign him after the poor performances of Aaron Cresswell and Arthur Masuaku.

Milan's interest in Emerson is long-standing, and they hoped to complete a permanent deal for the Italian last January.

A move to Juve could suit Emerson as he would returning to his home country to play under Pirlo, one of his nation's footballing heroes.

Emerson's move to the Serie A giants will follow the transfer of Alvaro Morata from Atletico Madrid, after theex-Blues striker completed his move back to Italy earlier today.
