Sharing Is Caring

Emerson Palmieri’s future was a major transfer story earlier this summer, but it’s all gone a bit quiet on that front in the last week as our focus has turned to incoming players.


But SportWitness pick up the story today, saying that there is an “appointment” planned between Chelsea and interested party Lazio, who will try to sign the left back this summer.

Chelsea have set their price floor at €15m, and as it stands Lazio aren’t willing to pay that.


There could be a long war of attrition this summer as both parties try to wait each other out. That suits us just fine. For the moment we have both Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri backing up Ben Chilwell. We will happily hold on to Emerson if Alonso leaves, and Lazio know it.


The ball is in their court – they need to decide what to do with it now.
