Emerson Palmieri arrived at Stamford Bridge from Roma in 2018, but the Italy international hasn’t cemented his place at Chelsea under Maurizio Sarri and now Frank Lampard.

The Italian international started this season as Frank Lampard’s first choice at left-back but has since lost his place to Marcos Alonso.

Emerson has been linked with a move away from Chelsea, and Emerson’s agent says that his client’s ultimate future is in the hands of God.

He said: “The only one who can answer this question is God, only he knows if Emerson will return to play in Italy or not.”

He also added: “Emerson is very happy at Chelsea, he is comfortable with his teammates and his coach. To date I have not had contact with any club. Yes, Juventus was interested when the boy played for Roma. It was the season before he moved to Chelsea.

“As I said, he is very happy at Chelsea and plays in one of the biggest leagues in the world. […] I don’t know [Sarri’s wishes] personally, I learned from the media that he had a great experience with him and that he likes his football.”
