Juventus close to sealing a move for £25m-rated want-away Chelsea star


Emerging reports indicate that Italian Serie A outfit Juventus are close to sealing a move for Chelsea left full-back Emerson Palmieri in this winter transfer window.

The Italian champions are reported to be eager and they are believed to be preparing a bid for Emerson Palmieri in order to beat the competition from their Serie A rivals Inter Milan who are also keen to add him to their team.

Emerson Palmieri is believed to be a good fit for the Italian Serie A team as he started his career in his Italian country home before having a move to the English Premier League.

Emerson Palmieri who joined Rhea West London side from Serie A outfit AS Roma for a fee of £18 million will not be allowed to leave for anything less which means that Juventus will have to pay more than what was invested in the player.

Despite not having a regular playing time at the Stamford Bridge, Emerson Palmieri is known to be a great player who has big potentials and would be able to play at the big stage.

However, the West London side have already made the glaring decision with Emerson Palmieri as he has been unused by manager Maurizio Sarri.
