Chelsea want €40m for Emerson Palmieri

Chelsea are ready to sell Emerson Palmieri but only if the valuation of €40m is met as reports of interest from the likes of Juventus and Inter Milan continue to circulate. A report by The Sun suggested that Chelsea are considering a summer swoop for Leicester defender Ben Chilwell and it is believed that he could be a replacement for Emerson. Therefore, the idea might be to offload the Italian and use some of the funds to ensure a move for Chilwell who is valued at £50m. Emerson, 25, is open to a return to Serie A according to Calciomercato although he's happy in London. Therefore, it would take around €40m to convince Chelsea to let go of the left-back as they are not desperate to see him leave.
