Chelsea star speaks up amid interest from Juventus

Timothy Aiyeku



Chelsea star Emerson Palmieri has been linked with a move to Italian Serie A outfit Juventus in this summer transfer window and there is already a reaction from him.

The left-back has not been favoured for selection in the Maurizio Sarri team which makes the speculations over his future at the club unending.

The Brazilian-born Italy international is very conversant with the Serie A, having spent three-and-a-half years with Palermo and Roma, before moving to Stamford Bridge in January last year.

Now that there are reports of an exit, he has come out to state that he is happy at the Stamford Bridge and still has a running contract with the club which means a move away is impossible for now.

The Santos academy graduate had about 27 appearances in all competitions under his belt last season including starting the 4-1 Europa League final win over Arsenal, he would rather remain with Chelsea and fight for a more playing time at the club.

However, Chelsea have got a lot to sort out with Juventus in this summer window, knowing that they are set to lose their manager Maurizio Sarri to the Serie A outfit and Nigerian international Victor Moses is also being linked.
