Inter Milan open talks with Chelsea for Emerson

Inter Milan have opened talks with Chelsea for Emerson Palmieri.

Sky Italia says the Italy international was signed for the Blues in 2018 by now Inter boss Antonio Conte in an £18million deal from Roma and now the Italian is said to be targeting him for next season as he looks to tighten up his back line.

Conte has already beefed up his side in an attempt to turn them into Serie A title winners, bringing in the likes of Christian Eriksen, Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku.

This week Inter announced the signing of coveted right-back Achraf Hakimi from Real Madrid.

But Emerson remains a possibility for Inter. The player hasn't established himself as a first-choice option for the Blues in his time at the club, playing 53 games in all competitions. This season he has managed 13 starts but was only selected in the starting XI seven times in the last campaign.
