Chelsea to target ex-Manchester City star for surprise January move

Chelsea make a move for Serie A full back

Chelsea have not at this point made an official offer for the former Manchester City striker, with the Italian outlet adding Roma sporting director Monchi does not intend to allow the player to leave this month.

The January transfer window is in full swing and it is well known that Antonio Conte's men have targeted left-back Emerson Palmieri, who has been valued at €25m.

"Chelsea are a concrete possibility, absolutely", the defender's agent Fernando Garcia said.

Finally asked if Emerson has the wish to play under Antonio Conte, the representative said: "Obviously yes, it would be a dream: Conte is a top manager, one of the best and most successful in the world".




Alonso has once again been an important player on the left for Chelsea this season, but Goal's Nizaar Kinsella reported their search for an alternative has taken them from Juventus' Alex Sandro and to the Italian capital with Emerson.

Two years after leaving Manchester City, Edin Dzeko has been linked with a return to Premier League football, this time with Chelsea.

The Blues are hoping to include Michy Batshuayi on loan as part of the deal.

Carroll's injury blow also sees West Ham lose the bargaining chip they had in their attempts to sign Batshuayi, per Burt's report, with both clubs now forced to reassess their winter renovations. He can also feature for Chelsea in the Champions League as he hasn't yet played for Roma in the competition this season.
