Emerson Palmieri has been heavily linked with a return to Italy after Chelsea signed Ben Chilwell from Leicester City this summer.

The Brazil-born Italy international finished last season as second-choice left-back behind Marcos Alonso and he appears to have fallen further down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge following the arrival of Ben Chilwell this summer.

Juventus – as well as Inter – have been linked in recent weeks, but according to Emerson’s agent, the left-back will remain at Chelsea.

“I always read that Emerson is close to Juventus, but I can reiterate that there have never been contacts in this transfer window with the Bianconero club,” Emerson’s agent told Tutto Juve.

“Right now it’s hard to talk about his farewell, the boy only thinks of Chelsea.”
