Juventus want to secure the services of Chelsea outcast in the present transfer window as they are looking for a greater squad depth.
Juventus have made some minor tweaks to their squad this summer and the biggest signing was the arrival of Alvaro Morata from Atletico Madrid. The striker was much needed, but the Italian giants also require a left-back considering Alex Sandro is their only quality option in the position.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the Bianconeri are interested in landing Emerson Palmeiri from Chelsea. The Brazilian full-back is been seen as backup left-back for his countryman, Sandro.
The Chelsea left-back has been short of game time under coach Frank Lampard. Marcos Alonso had got the nod ahead of the former Roma full-back in the last season and his game-time was limited to only 15 appearances in the Premier League last season.
Since his arrival from Roma in January 2018, the Italian international has not been at his best for the club and as a result has not been a consistent starter for the Blues even under Antonio Conte or Maurizio Sarri. With the arrival of Ben Chilwell, the full-back might lose more ground on gaining a starting spot, thereby making his departure an imminent event.
The Italian champions are currently exploring the option of a loan deal for the player and might agree on an option to buy him after the end of his initial term at the club. There have been no concrete details about how the transfer will take place but regardless of it being a loan or purchase, one wouldn’t imagine it being exorbitantly priced or difficult in some other way.
Andrea Pirlo will be making sure that the club do not fall short of resources in the upcoming season. The Old Lady are preparing an efficient squad for the upcoming season which will not only aim for domestic glory but also clinch the Champions League trophy- one which they have not won since over two decades.
With Emerson, Juve will have the advantage of possessing two operational full-backs. The idea of having two established left-backs will be beneficial for the club throughout the season as it will help in distributing the workload for the squad and promote healthy competition among the players.
Moreover, that is among the only roles which is not backed up with a second player and it has forced Danilo and Mattia De Sciglio to adapt in an uncomfortable role and ultimately be overworked.
The Chelsea left-back is in desperate need of more game-time and at Allianz Stadium the player won’t be making any compromises in developing and improving his game with the presence of seasoned figures and successful players such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Gianluigi Buffon amongst others.
Do you think Emerson’s potential switch to the Allianz Stadium will be a fruitful deal?
