Italy manager Roberto Mancini says he would like to see Chelsea’s Emerson Palmieri return to Serie A.

Euro 2020 was pushed back until the summer of 2021 and the manager considers his selection for the delayed European Championship.

Emerson left Roma for Stamford Bridge in 2018. However, he has been in and out of the Blues’ side ever since.

“As for the full-backs, we knew Adam Masina, although he disappeared from the radar a bit after his move to Watford,” Mancini told the Gazzetta dello Sport. “Luca Pellegrini already spent time with the senior squad and can improve. It would be nice if Emerson Palmieri, who hasn’t played much for Chelsea, could come and play in Italy.”
