Agent: Emerson staying at Chelsea

Emerson Palmieri’s agent has confirmed that the Italy left-back is staying at Chelsea this summer.

Emerson had been linked with several moves back to Serie A, initially failing to displace Marcos Alonso at Chelsea when Antonio Conte was still Coach.

However, the Roma old boy has gone on to play 27 times under Maurizio Sarri, starting the Blues’ 4-1 win against Arsenal in the Europa League Final.

“He still has years left on his contract,” Leonardo Cornacini, a representative of the player’s agency Elenko Sports, told Tuttomercatoweb.

“He’s happy and the club are happy to keep him. We’re certain that his future is in London.”
