Chelsea have decided that they will sell Emerson Palmieri and are already in the process of finding a new left back according to a report from British newspaper The Telegraph.

The Brazilian born Italian national team defender is a transfer target for both Inter and Juventus as per recent reports in the Italian media and the news that Chelsea are ready to offload him is bound to come as a boost to their hopes of signing him.
