Lyon working on £15m deal to snap up Chelsea defender

The Ligue 1 club Lyon have started discussions with Chelsea about defender Emerson Palmieri, according to a recent report from The Guardian.

It is said that Thomas Tuchel’s side are ready to sell the player this month because of the oversized roster. In addition, he is below both Marcos Alonso and Ben Chilwell in the battle for the left wing-back position at Stamford Bridge.

Emerson, who won the Euros this summer with Italy, has been with the Blues since the winter of 2018. However, the left-footer has played only 71 senior team games and struggled to force his way into the starting XI.
