According to Italian media outlet Gazzetta dello Sport via TribalFootball, Italian side Napoli are interested in a move for Chelsea left-back Emerson Palmieri.

New Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti knows all about Emerson from their time together at Roma and is keen on bringing the 26 year old to Napoli.

Emerson is valued at around £13million by the Blues but Napoli are hoping to knock that down to £10m.

The Serie A side are also hoping to reduce the player’s wages due to the difficult economic circumstances.

Currently earning £75,000-a-week, that figure reportedly does not fit into Napoli’s planned salary structure.
