Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri is incredibly keen to bring Chelsea full back Emerson Palmieri to Rome.
As reported by Italian newspaper La Repubblica (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the Biancocelesti are looking for a new left back for next month’s transfer window and the 62-year-old Italian coach has already found his dream target.
This player is the 27-year-old Emerson, who was a part of the Italy squad during their successful Euro 2020 run in the summer. He is currently on a season-long loan with Lyon and is contracted to Chelsea until 2024.
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.
