Emerson Palmieri has told the club that he has no desire to leave, amid Juventus speculation.
He has not been an integral figure in the starting line-up during his time at the club, with most of his performances coming in the Europa League and Domestic Cup competitions.
And that has led to speculation in the media which suggested that he is thought to be open to return at some point, with Champions Juventus reportedly ready to try and agree a deal.[the_ad id=”164″]
However, the 24-year-old has played down talks of a transfer this summer, insisting it is not an issue currently on his mind.
“I have a contract with Chelsea where I am happy, especially after this Europa League. For the rest, I have received nothing,” Emerson said.
“Everyone says so (that he could move), but I am a very quiet boy.
“I work and I try not to think about these things.”
Ryan Fraser has admitted he is now likely to remain at Bournemouth for another year.
We will be in the market for a Premier League proven winger, and considering Fraser was just behind Eden Hazard in the assist charts in the League last season, he is ready for that step up to the big time.
The Scotland winger’s contract expires next summer so the Cherries were expected to cash in on him, especially as there is real interest in Fraser following his excellent 2018/19 season.
But the 25-year-old has now admitted it is more than likely he will still be a Bournemouth player when the transfer window closes in August.
“The likelihood is I will be at Bournemouth for another year,” said Fraser on the TalkSport website.
“And what will happen, will happen.
“That is all I can really say about it. No one has really spoken to me about it.”[the_ad id=”164″]
Juventus coach Max Allegri has suggested that he will not be signing for Chelsea this summer as the replacement for Maurizio Sarri.
Sarri feels he can leave with his head held high after winning the Europa League and qualifying for the Champions League, two things which he was brought in to try and accomplish at the club, but his departure from the club opened the door for us to seal a deal for Allegri, who is very keen on a move to the premier League.
However, Speaking to Castello Sforzesco in Milan, he said: “I will stay [away] for a year because I have to get back my private life, to find my family, children and friends after so many years.
“These last 16 years I have been in a centrifuge.
“I will give my family, children and friends some affection.
“This year, I will need this [time off] in order to recharge my batteries for the next season.”
Dennis Wise has urged Frank Lampard to snub a move back to the Blues and stay at Derby.
Sarri never felt comfortable living and working in England and has been tempted back to his homeland with a move to Juventus, who has decided to part ways with boss Max Allegri, despite the Italian boss bringing back another Seria A title.
But his departure from the club opened the door for Lampard, who has been impressing at Derby this season.
But Blues legend Wise argues it’s too soon for his former team-mate to take such a huge step.
“I’m surprised, if I’m being honest,” Wise said to talkSPORT on Lampard’s links with the Blues.
“He did a good job getting them [Derby] into the play-offs. But getting to the play-off final and not going up isn’t good enough.
“In the last five seasons, they’ve been in the play-offs three times. It’s something they’ve done before.
“I think it would be good if he stays there. The expectation at Derby is to try and get them into the play-offs and get them up.
“The expectation of Chelsea is to get into the Champions League and try to win trophies against the best teams.
“That’s a big jump from Derby to Chelsea if it happens.”[the_ad id=”164″]
