Chelsea are reportedly demanding around €20m for Emerson Palmieri amid the high-profile interest from Serie A clubs.

The Italian was the third-choice option for the left-back role last term, with Ben Chilwell and Marcos Alonso favoured ahead of him.

With just 13 months left on his contract, he has been touted to leave, but the Blues are reluctant to lose him on the cheap.

According to Sky Italy, the Blues are aware of the interest from the likes of Inter Milan, Napoli and Lazio in Emerson.

They are hoping for a bidding war, and have reportedly set a price tag of around €20m for the former Roma man.

Despite his limited game time, Emerson has made the cut with Italy for the upcoming European Championships.

His future is expected to be resolved following the tournament as he has a key role to play for Roberto Mancini‘s side.

Alongside Emerson, the likes of Tammy Abraham, Michy Batshuayi, Tiemoue Bakayoko are expected to be sold by the Blues.
