The deal would be complicated to pull offer but Sarri’s pull may convince Emerson to join Lazio and return to Serie A, especially considering their successful time together in London three years ago.

The 27-year-old Brazilian full back has made 14 Ligue 1 appearances so far this season for Lyon, for a total of 1135 minutes. In that time, he has scored one goal and provided one assist.
