Serie A clubs Juventus and Inter Milan are keen on signing the Brazilian-born Italian international and are thought to be readying bids of up to €30m (£28m) for Emerson.

Emerson’s agent Luis Fernando Garcia, recently told Juvenews: “We know very well about Juventus’ interest but also about Inter. So far there has been no talk of a transfer with Chelsea, nor has there been any official offer.

“I believe that until May there will be no official offers from the two clubs. In the summer we will decide what to do.”
