The London Blues are returning to their familiar hunting ground: Serie A.
After singing Marcos Alonso from Fiorentina when Conte first arrived, now Chelsea have their sights trained on Emerson Palmieri.
The Brazil born-Italy left back was a major piece to Roma last season, but an ACL injury in the spring forced him out of action. He made his season debut in the Coppa Italia in December, but is still working towards regaining full fitness.
Aleksander Kolarov has seemingly pushed him out of his role, which is why the club seems set to sell him.
Gianluca Di Marzio reports Emerson may be “sacrificed” in order to finance Roma’s objectives, which could be to re-sign Matteo Politano from Sassuolo.
