Antonio Conte wants to sign Chelsea defender

Emerson to Inter?

Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte is reportedly keen on a reunion with Chelsea defender Emerson Palmieri this summer.

The 26-year-old has made 11 appearances for the Blues this term, but he played just one game since Thomas Tuchel‘s arrival.

He is currently behind Marcos Alonso and Ben Chilwell in the pecking order for the left-back/left wing-back role and he could be on the move.

A recent report claimed that the Blues could sell him for just £17m and Calciomercato claims that the Nerazzurri are interested.

Conte previously recruited Emerson for the Blues three years ago and he is keen on luring his compatriot to San Siro ahead of next season.

Emerson will enter the final year of his contract in July this year and the Blues will be desperate to sanction his departure.

It remains to be seen whether the Nerazzurri are willing to meet their price tag. They may have to lower their asking price further.
