Lazio boss Sarri eyeing reunion with Chelsea's Emerson

Maurizio Sarri has made Chelsea defender Emerson Palmieri a priority transfer this summer, according to reports in Italy. 

The Lazio boss worked with Emerson in his sole season at Chelsea in 2018-19, in which they won the Europa League, and is said to be keen on a reunion. 

Football Italia has reported the left-back is equally as interested in a return to Italy, while Corriere dello Sport has claimed the Serie A side are poised to open talks with Chelsea regarding a move.

The 27-cap Italy star - who won the Euros with the Azzurri last summer - spent last campaign on loan at French club Lyon, making 29 Ligue 1 appearances and 36 in all competitions, scoring one goal.
