Juventus are reportedly interested in Chelsea fullback Emerson Palmieri. The Brazilian is expected to leave Chelsea in the summer after failing to convince manger Frank Lampard of his talents.

Italian tabloid Tuttosport claims that Juventus chief Fabio Paratici has identified the defender as a potential target in the summer. Emerson is highly rated by Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri.

Juventus are currently short of options in the left-back position with Alex Sandro the only specialist left-back in the team. The Italian champions are looking to add depth and the former Roma fits the bill.

Chelsea are open to selling and talks are set to begin with the two clubs in the coming weeks. Inter Milan have also expressed interest in the defender who Conte rates highly.

From the looks of things, Emerson is likely to return to the Italian league next season. Chelsea have already lined up Leicester man Ben Chilwell as potential replacement for the left-back position.
