25m-rated Chelsea player on his way to Juventus


English Premier League side Chelsea left full-back Emerson Palmieri is reported to be heading to the Italian Serie outfit Juventus in this winter transfer window.

Emerson Palmieri has been out of favour in the Blues team and he hopes to find a new life should a deal fall in place for him to the Italian Serie A outfit.

Juventus have big need for Emerson Palmieri and they hope to land him in this winter transfer window with manager Max Allegri keen to have him as a replacement for Leonardo Spinazzola who is currently in bad form.

Emerson Palmieri joined the West London die last summer for a fee of £18 million from another Italian Serie A outfit AS Roma but has yet to find enough expression in the Maurizio Sarri team knowing that he has not had enough time.

Despite seeing only 11 games so far and scoring a goal across all competition, Emerson Palmieri is tipped to be a big potential and he is expected to improve better when he secure regular playing time.

It is therefore unsure if the West London side will be ready to part ways with Emerson Palmieri at the moment know g that they have got big need for options in the team.
