Juventus want to sign Chelsea star Emerson Palmieri and they are ready to offer Alex Sandro as part of the deal, according to Tuttosport.

Emerson has repeatedly been linked with a return to Serie A, having fallen down the pecking order under Frank Lampard.

Juventus are confident about securing the signature of Emerson. Chelsea have already quoted Juventus £22m for Emerson’s services, but the Italians want to explore the option of a swap deal.

They could use Sandro to flavour the deal with Chelsea, but the Italian do value the Brazilian at a higher price than Emerson.
