Inter Milan have made a concrete move to sign Chelsea fullback Emerson Palmieri. According to reports from Italy the Inter Milan have identified Emerson as their prime target for the summer.
Tuttosport claims that the Italian giants have open talks with Chelsea regarding a transfer fee for the defender. Emerson has failed to convince since making a big money move from Roma some seasons back.
Despite this, the Brazilian is considered highly in Italy with Inter Milan and Juventus on his trail in recent weeks.
This speculations have spread to the ears of manager Frank Lampard who admitted last week that he was unaware of reports. “I’m not aware of the talks,” he said.
He further revealed that the player is focused and talks could occur at the end of the season.
Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte is plotting to strenghten the squad ahead of a renewed title bid next season.
The succesful manager has already signed highly rated defender Hakimi from Real Madrid and Emerson would be a coup for the Nerazurri.
