Emerson Palmieri makes an admission on his future amid Chelsea return

Emerson Palmieri is yet to talk to Thomas Tuchel about his future.

The 27-year-old defender spent a season-long loan at Lyon making 36 appearances for the French club.

The Italian defender is keen to play first-team football at Chelsea under Thomas Tuchel.

He was called upon in January to replace Ben Chilwell who endured a season-ending injury but Lyon blocked the move since he had a contract until the end of the season.

‘I didn’t speak with [Tuchel] just yet,’ Emerson told Goal.

‘I have a contract with Chelsea. I played there for three seasons and I have a lot of friends there.

‘If I come back, I’ll be happy. It’s a good place and club for me. Let’s see what can happen.”

‘Lyon said ‘no’ [to a return in January] so I didn’t come back. It didn’t depend on me. Those conversations were between the clubs.

‘Lyon said ‘no’ and I respected that because when I signed there I signed for one year, not six months.

‘But now I will go back to Chelsea in the pre-season I think and let’s see what happens in the next month.’
