Lyon fullback Emerson to return to Chelsea

Lyon fullback Emerson Palmieri is set to return to Chelsea.

Emerson is to return to Chelsea next season after his successful loan spell with Lyon.

The Italian left-back, 27, made a temporary switch to the French giants last summer and has impressed in Ligue 1.

Juventus are also said to be keen but the Blues may want to retain him as part of a squad built for the new era of Todd Boehly's ownership.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano tweeted: “Emerson Palmieri will leave OL [Lyon] at the end of current season and will return to Chelsea - he's definitely not gonna stay at OL next year."
