A Chelsea player is keen on leaving the club this summer after falling down the pecking order at the club.

According to transfer expert Nicolo Schira, Chelsea left-back Emerson Palmieri has handed in a transfer request in an attempt to force a move to Inter Milan.

The Brazilian-born Italy international wants to return to the Italian league to keep his spot in the Italian national team ahead of the Euros in 2021.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has preferred right-back Cesar Azpilicueta over Marcos Alonso and Emerson at left-back and with Lampard keen on signing Ben Chilwell from Leicester City this summer, Emerson is keen on leaving to get regular playing time.

Inter Milan have contacted Chelsea over a move for Emerson and Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia is demanding a fee of €25 million.
