Juventus are reportedly ready to offer Chelsea a swap deal.
The Turin based outfit led by former Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri are interested in signing Blues defender Emerson Palmieri. Emerson joined Chelsea from AS Roma and although he was excellent back in Rome, the left wing back has struggled to acclimatise to life in England.
He has been in and out of the team and reports suggested that Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard has run out of patience with him. He has no shortage of defenders of course with the likes of Inter Milan, AC Milan, Juventus and a host of other clubs interested in him.
Chelsea are actively looking for a left back themselves to replace Marcos Alonso in the first team and this is where Juventus can skip ahead of the chasing pack for Emerson.
They are ready to offer Alex Sandro, a former Chelsea target and Juvnetus’ current left back in exchange for Palmieri. Lampard might just be tempted to the deal after his latest target Alex Telles from Porto is reportedly leaning towards a move to PSG leaving Frank with little options.
Do you think it will be a smart move from Chelsea?
