Emerson Palmieri feels Chelsea will recall him from his Lyon loan spell in January.
Emerson Palmieri has revealed he would be happy to return to Stamford Bridge. He has also declared he is unsure where he will be playing next season.
Emerson spent last season on-loan with Olympique Lyon.
He said: “I haven’t spoken Thomas Tuchel just yet.
“I have a contract with Chelsea. I played there for three seasons and I have a lot of friends there and if I come back, I’ll be happy.
“It’s a good place and club for me. I don’t know [whether I will return], let’s see what can happen.”
Emerson also revealed it was flattering that the Blues wanted to recall him from his Lyon loan spell in January.
Palmieri added: “For me, it was a good season because I played a lot of games.
“Of course [it felt good that Chelsea wanted him back in January]. Lyon said no, so I didn’t come back.
“It didn’t depend on me and 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 for the pre-season and let’s see what happens in the next month.”
