Report: Club Begin Talks To Sign Highly Rated Chelsea Defender

French club Lyon have reportedly started talks with Chelsea about blues player Emerson Palmieri.

It is understood that Thomas Tuchel side are prepared to sell the left back this month because of the oversized squad. Tuchel already has Ben Chiwell and Marcos Alonso at his disposal in Emerson position.

The pair has been sharing game time since the arrival of Tuchel in January. Chilwell is seen as the long- term solution for the blues, although Tuchel rates Marcos Alonso attacking ability and he is keen to keep him.

Emerson who won the Euros in the summer with Italy has been with Chelsea since 2018 but has struggled for game time.

Chelsea squad is far too stacked and offloading some players is the best way to go, according to the Chelsea Coach.

Chelsea have placed a £17m on the unwanted Italian left back Emerson Palmieri, according to reports

He's been deemed as surplus to requirements at Stanford Bridge with the blues ready to listen to offers.
