Emerson Palmeiri Chelsea

Emerson Palmeiri says he is “happy” at Chelsea despite reports linking him with a move Serie A giants Juventus.

The Blues boss Maurizio Sarri has been tipped to fill the vacant managerial role at Juventus with his Stamford Bridge future in doubt.

The former Napoli coach only took charge of Chelsea last summer and secured the Europa League title, a third-place Premier League finish and reached the Carabao Cup final.

Despite that, he sometimes felt the wrath of fans for his approach and is now reportedly being lined up to succeed Massimiliano Allegri at Juventus.

And there have been reports that suggest Emerson, who was first-choice left-back under Sarri, could follow his compatriot back to Italy.

On the speculation, Emerson told Tutto Mercato Web: “I have a contract with Chelsea where I am happy, especially after winning the Europa League. Apart from that, I have not received anything.”

When pushed further on whether he will move to Juventus, Emerson added: “They all say that, but I am a very calm guy. I work and try not to think about these things.”
