Juventus determined to prise Emerson away from Chelsea

Chelsea fullback Emerson Palmieri remains on the radar of Maurizio Sarri's Juventus.

Sarri's side are looking for cover for first-choice Alex Sandro in the position and could swoop for the Italy international, who played under Sarri at Stamford Bridge last season.

Tuttosport says Juve sporting director Fabio Paratici has sounded out the 25-year-old as a potential solution.

Emerson has made 12 appearances in all competitions for Frank Lampard's team so far this season, and started in their 2-1 victory against Lille in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
