Chelsea prepare to keep €20m-rated defender despite several offers

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri decided to keep Emerson Palmieri in the club amid several proposals from Inter Milan, Juventus and Milan. Marcos Alonso heavily linked with Atletico Madrid and there is no time for losing one more left-back. Italy international had a good campaign and proved his worth one more time.

Nerazzurri, Bianconeri and Rossoneri will do everything to sign him in July when the transfer window opens again. Palmieri joined the London club from Roma last winter with a £20m deal. He became an essential person for the club and won Europa League and FA Cup with them.

In this season, Emerson played 27 matches, scored one goal and provided two assists in all tournament. It is an excellent result, and he can improve his consequences during the next campaign. The 24-year-old left-back has contracted with Chelsea until 2022, and his release clause is around £20m.

He regularly plays in the national team which is already a great success for the footballer. Probably Italian defender will accept to remain in English club and help them to win many trophies. London club had an excellent result in the Premier League as they finished the competition in a third position.

Chelsea won the Europa League final against Arsenal 4-1 which is the first title for Maurizio Sarri. English club signed several players last summer like Jorginho from Napoli, Mateo Kovacic from Real Madrid and Kepa Arrizabalaga from Atheltic Bilbao. Blues also added Juventus centre-forward Gonzalo Higuain and Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic this January.
