Chelsea must improve Emerson bid

Calciomercato report that Chelsea have made their move to sign the Brazlian, lodging a bid worth an initial £17.65M, which could rise to £22M.

Emerson Palmieri's representative has indicated that Chelsea have the edge in the race for the Roma full-back, who is also wanted at Liverpool and Newcastle United.

Palmieri, who had a season on loan at Palermo during 2014-15, signed for Roma from Santos in December 2016.

Antonio Conte will undoubtedly be looking to provide Marcos Alonso with some genuine competition at left-wing-back.

But the Brazilian left-back is now close to completing a move to Stamford Bridge, according to The Sun.

"Now the two clubs are talking, we'll see if they are successful".

Maybe that's why the agent has ruled out going to Roma to speak to club and player: "I have no plans to come to Italy, at least immediately, we are waiting".

'It would be a dream, ' said Garcia.

Chelsea have not at this point made an official offer for the former Manchester City striker, with the Italian outlet adding Roma sporting director Monchi does not intend to allow the player to leave this month. "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".
