After struggling for game time at Chelsea, Chelsea left-back Emerson Palmieri opted for a loan switch to France Ligue One giants Lyon.

The Italy international has admitted that he’s enjoying his stay at the South of France and is keen to make his stay at Lyon permanent.

He said, as quoted by FootMercato: “Of course, yes, I have no problem saying that I can stay at Lyon.

“It’s a pleasure to be here. There are different factors. It’s not just up to me. “

Emerson added everything regarding his future will be concluded at the end of the current campaign.

He added: “There are six matches left to play and after that I will have an answer for you all.”

Lyon do reportedly have the option to sign Emerson permanently upon the expiry of his temporary deal.

He has played 32 times for Lyon this term – scoring one goal and providing two assists.
