The latest on Chelsea’s attempts to bring Emerson back from Lyon

The latest on Chelsea’s attempts to bring Emerson back from Lyon

A fresh update on Chelsea’s attempts to bring Emerson Palmieri back to the club from his Lyon loan has been provided on Saturday.

Emerson would, of course, join the French outfit on a season-long loan over the summer. A move that made sense at the time given Ben Chilwell and Marcos Alonso were vying it out to be the Blues’ number one left-back.

Chilwell, though, has since suffered a long-term injury, whilst Alonso is not in the best of form, making a new left-back a necessity at Chelsea.

Now though, Fabrizio Romano is reporting that Lyon have turned down three approaches from Chelsea for Emerson, aiming to keep the Italian until the end of the season.

Chelsea are said to have offered €4m in compensation, but Romano stated that a deal looks difficult now.


Chelsea should sign Cucurella

With Chelsea still struggling to sign a new left-back, they should turn their attentions to Marc Cucurella.

With Marcos Alonso clearly an unreliable option, it is probably a good idea for Chelsea to sign someone who can compete with Ben Chilwell in the long run.

And the Brighton man looks to be a great option. The Spaniard, along with Tariq Lamptey, operates in a very similar way to Chilwell and Reece James, providing width and a large part of their side’s creativity in a back-five system.

Chelsea would get a close look at Cucurella recently when they drew 1-1 with Brighton. The defender caused the Londoners, and especially Cesar Azpilicueta, all sorts of issues on the evening.
