Emerson Palmieri will snub a move to Inter Milan to stay at Chelsea, reports Goal.
The Italy international arrived Chelsea in the January of 2018 but remained on the fringes of the club until the second half of this season. He has found his way into the first team of the Blues ahead of former favourite Marcos Alonso.
His display has caught the attention of The Nerazzurri, who have added him to their shopping list for the coming transfer window. The San Siro outfit are not the only club interested in his services, we learnt that he’s also on the radar of other Serie A clubs.
However, the 24-year-old left back has set his sight on making a name for himself in the Premier League with Chelsea. He spoke ahead of Chelsea’s draw with Burnley where he reiterated his desire to see out his contract.
“It is true that in these last few months I have played a lot more, but I already felt I am a player who is well adapted to English football,”
“There is a lot more intensity to the game here, both going forward and certainly in the defensive phase so, without having learned to be more intense as a player, you could not play in my role here in England. I feel I’m well adapted to that.
“Here, at times, the tactics are left behind, and it becomes about intensity and strength so, if you are that kind of player, it’s easier to adapt yourself to the game here.”
Chelsea are on course for the Europa League title and they currently sit in fourth place on the Premier League table.
Palmieri has started in 21 games for the Blues this time and the form of Alonso means he is first choice for the left back position.
