Playing 118 minutes of the Euros final as he took over from Leonardo Spinazzola in the Italy squad, Emerson Palmieri put himself on display for the world to see.
He might have left Kieran Trippier with a bit too much space for Luke Shaw’s opener, but the Chelsea player showed better discipline as the game went on, eventually helping his side lift the trophy as they beat England on penalties.
Throughout the tournament, Palmieri spent a lot of time with his Stamford Bridge teammate Jorginho, and the pair enjoyed some conversations, including one about Napoli, who are interested in signing the left-back.
Now, this doesn’t come from a random journalist, but from the mouth of the Blues’ midfielder’s agent, Joao Santos.
Speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss, the representative was asked about the two Chelsea players who featured for Italy on Sunday night, and gave away some news he was made aware of.
He said, relayed by Il Napoli Online: “I know that Emerson Palmieri has asked Jorginho information about the city of Naples and the way of football life in Napoli. We’ll see what can happen on the transfer market. Jorginho will stay at Chelsea for another year, then we’ll see”.
