Second Serie A team joins chase for important Chelsea bench option » Chelsea News

This season will have taught Chelsea a lot about their left back situation.

Ben Chilwell was superb – and then got injured for 2/3rds of the season. Manager Thomas Tuchel then had the full experience of his backup Marcos Alonso – great moments but some poor games.

Tuchel seems more of a fan of Emerson Palmieri, the other option in the squad who was on loan at Lyon.

His good season there has meant there’s plenty of interest in signing him. CalcioMercato today report that Lazio and Juventus are both keen to persuade Chelsea to sell.

The question is how the Blues play this all. Do they sell both Alonso and Emerson and buy a new replacement? Or sell Alonso and bring Emerson back into the fold as their second choice? The least likely option looks like keeping Alonso and selling Emerson – so any action probably starts with the Spaniard finding a move.
