Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte is keen on signing Emerson this summer, having signed him for Chelsea in January 2018.

The report claims Emerson is happy to leave Chelsea for Inter Milan this summer because he is not a guaranteed starter at Chelsea and wants the best chance of being Italy’s first choice at next summer’s European Championship.

With Chelsea boss Frank Lampard keen on signing a new left-back this summer, Emerson believes he will struggle to get game time at Chelsea next season.

Serie A side Juventus are also interested in signing Emerson this summer.
