Chelsea slap astonishing £27m price tag on Inter Milan target Emerson Palmieri in order to part ways with the defender during this summer’s transfer window.
The Blues hierarchy are said to be in the market for a new addition for the left wing-back role ahead of 2020-21 campaign.
According to Tuttosport, Emerson is wanted by the Serie A giants Inter Milan, but Chelsea are unlikely to sell him for anything below his valuation.
The west Londoners want at least £27million to part ways with the Italian left-back, who chalked up 53 appearances since his move from AS Roma in January 2018.
Palmieri’s contract at Stamford Bridge runs until 2022 and he has already hinted that he would prefer a move to Italy.
