Chelsea are in talks to sell left-back Emerson Palmieri to Ligue 1 side Lyon.
Emerson joined Chelsea from Roma for an initial £17.6m in January 2018 when Antonio Conte was manager and has gone on to play over 70 times for the club.
However, he has struggled to displace both Marcos Alonso and Ben Chilwell – who moved to Stamford Bridge from Leicester for around £50m last summer – from the side.
Emerson was part of the Italy squad that won Euro 2020 this summer and started in the final against England at Wembley.
He featured four times at the tournament, becoming Italy’s starting left-back after Roma’s Leonardo Spinazzola was injured in the quarter-final win over Belgium.
