1. Chelsea looking to keep Emerson for longer
The situation is getting better and better for Emerson Palmieri at Chelsea since he joined two years ago while Antonio Conte was still the manager of The Blues. Since joinng, he has been a regular at left-back, with Marcos Alonso being pushed outside of the starting lineup and Emerson might get a reward for his fine performances with a new deal at the club.
His current contract valid untill June 2022, till the Blues are considering to offer him a new deal of another year and a pay rise. Thus, the 25-year-old might stay at Stamford Bridge until June 2023 if he signed the deal, giving him a good platform to continue improving under Frank Lampard.

That is why a new contract has been prepared by the Serie A outfit for the 23-year-old footballer which will be worth EUR 3m per year. Furthermore, there would be no release clause for him.
