The Italian media continues to follow the chase for Chelsea fullback Emerson Palmieri very closely, and it looks like we’re seeing the final stages of this saga.

Outlet Il Messaggero now reports that the Blues and Inter Milan have finally reached a general agreement for the left-back.

Their report says it will cost the Nerazzurri around €25m for the total operation, which includes a loan with an obligatory clause to buy.

It’s claimed that Emerson Palmieri has already said yes to Inter Milan, as he ‘can’t wait’ to return to Italy, where he’s previously featured for Palermo and Roma.

Reports from Italian newspapers on Wednesday morning had already claimed that a deal could be found for between €20m and €25m, so it makes sense that the clubs reached an agreement at this level.

The Brazilian has made only one appearance for the Blues since the Coronavirus break, and that should be a clear sign that manager Frank Lampard no longer counts on him.
