Chelsea and Lyon to open talks about deal for impressive defender who wants move

Chelsea and Lyon are all set to open talks about a summer transfer deal for defender Emerson Palmieri.

There are a number of players that could leave the club at the end of the season after failing to agree a new contract with the club, and there are also a number of players that fancy a fresh start in the game.

And Emerson is a player that may finally get a permanent move away from Stamford Bridge when the transfer window opens up in June, as he has settled very nicely over in French football since his loan move began at the beginning of the season.

There were rumours that Chelsea were open to bringing him back in the January window, but despite all the speculation, that did not happen and he could now be all set to depart the club on a permanent basis.

That’s according to journalist Ekrem Konur, who has claimed French side Lyon are keen to make the defender’s recent loan move permanent and are set to open talks with the Blues’ hierarchy.

Emerson didnt really do anything wrong at the club before he was sent out on loan, but he was just fed up of sitting on the bench ever week. So if he does decide to leave the club on a permanent basis, it could be a very smart decision.

Yes he is still a Chelsea player, but at the end of the day, he has been enjoying himself out in French football and is getting regular minutes on the pitch, so why would he want to come back and just struggle in that Blues side?
