The Juventus managerial job is currently vacant, as Max Allegri vacated the post at the end of the season.

Sarri is reported to have told Chelsea of his intentions to quit the club after Wednesday’s 4-1 win over Arsenal in the Europa League final in Baku, and will succeed Allegri at Juventus, once the Serie A champions have agreed a compensation fee.

Sarri is known to take players along with him whenever he moves clubs as he did with Jorginho, taking the Italy international along with him when he left Napoli for Chelsea last summer.

According to reports, Juventus are lining up moves for Chelsea left-back Emerson Palmieri as Sarri makes the switch to Juventus this summer.

Emerson signed for Chelsea from Italian side Roma two seasons ago and has struggled to cement a place in the Chelsea team. Emerson has played second fiddle to Marcos Alonso in the left-back position since joining Chelsea, but he saw more playing time this past season.

Real Madrid are currently eyeing Juve left-back Alex Sandro, and the Italian champions are willing to let Sandro go for the right price if they can bring in suitable replacements, and they have identified Emerson as a good replacement, according to Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport.

Emerson was able to feature in 11 Europa League games last season, 10 Premier League matches and he also made 5 League Cup appearances where he scored a goal.
