Chelsea turn to Roma striker Edin Dzeko

Chelsea turn to Roma striker Edin Dzeko

Emerson Palmieri plays as a left-back, a problem position for the Reds in recent years, although new signing Andrew Robertson showed against Manchester City he can solve it.

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte wants extra strength in depth to help Marcos Alonso as the fixtures pile up in the second half of the season.

Instead, they appear to have turned their attention to the more affordable Emerson, who could be available for around £20m.

Emerson's entourage had talks with Chelsea last week while they were in London to hold discussions with Arsenal regarding the Gunners' interest in signing Malcom from Bordeaux.

Heavy police security was deployed at the hospital preventing VHP workers from entering the premises. Reacting to his charge, Nirupam told reporters that, "We have ideological differences with Togadia".


However, both Liverpool and Juventus have also been linked with a move for the Brazilian, which could further scupper the Blues' plans. The 23-year-old had just returned from a knee ligament issue, though like fellow former Roma defender Antonio Rudiger, he recovered from it rather quickly in just half a season.

"Chelsea are a concrete possibility, absolutely. Emerson would love to play in the Premier League and would love to work with Conte, he is a top manager, one of the best in the World".

Alternatively, Chelsea may look towards Porto left-back Alex Telles, who has excelled in Portugal this campaign.

Conte has signed £15 million midfielder Ross Barkley during this transfer window and is also keen on a striker to provide competition for first choice Alvaro Morata.
