Roma contact Chelsea over Inter Target Emerson Palmieri, Italian broadcaster reports
Roma have opened talks with Chelsea on the possibility of signing Inter target Emerson Palmieri.
This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, who reports that the Giallorossi are considering Emerson as Leonardo Spinzzaola’s replacement.
Spinazzola suffered a torn Achilles in Italy’s quarter-final victory over Belgium at the Euro, and the injury should rule him out for a significant part of next season.
Roma will look to bring in a leftist who can play during the 28-year-old’s absence, and Emerson has reportedly been identified as a target for the role.
Chelsea are reportedly demanding € 20-25million for Emerson, which would be way too much for the Giallorossi, and even a loan could prove too onerous for them.
It remains to be seen how that will affect the 26-year-old’s pursuit by the Nerazzurri, with a left-wing finish in the squad seen as a priority and the player a potential target.
Emerson was a proposed player by the Blues as part of a more cash player offer for Achraf Hakimi before the Moroccan was determined to become PSG, although it remains clear whether Inter or any interested club should have hard to persuade Chelsea to go their separate ways. with the player now.
