Emerson Palmieri on the way to Chelsea?
Chelsea is weighing up a move for Roma left-back.
The 22-year old left-back has impressed greatly under Luciano Spalletti in the 2015-16 season after joining Roma on loan from Santos in December.
The latest Serie A sensation has caught the eye of major European clubs like Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Chelsea.In his starting days, Emerson spent most of his time as a back-up for Digne. After Digne moved to Spanish giant Barcelona Emerson has successfully filled up the void left by Digne.
Chelsea coach, Antonio Conte is looking forward to signing him and provide competition for Marcos Alonso at left wing back. Although Emerson played as a left back at Roma he has managed to score one goal in 3-1 win over Ac Milan in serieA and one goal in UEFA Europa League in 4-0 win over Villareal. He likes to play short passes and shoot from distance.
His crossing, holding on to the ball and dribbling capabilities are also very strong. He is a versatile player and can play as left back, central midfielder and right central back.
Now the question is will Roma allow Emerson to go to Chelsea and if he comes to Chelsea can he adapt to fast and physical football of English Premier league?
