Fernando Garcia, the agent of Chelsea’s Emerson Palmieri, has denied having any contact with either Inter manager Antonio Conte or Inter over a potential move in the upcoming transfer window.
The Brazilian born Italian national team defender has been heavily linked with both Inter and Juventus ahead of the transfer window.
“At the moment everything is on hold. We have had no contact with any club, not even with Inter. We have never talked to Conte,” Garcia explained in an interview with Italian news outlet FCInter1908.it.
Garcia was then asked about the possibility of a return to Italy for his client, who has previously played for Roma and Palermo.
“A return to Italy? I don’t know, let’s see what happens. He still has three years left on his contract with Chelsea.”
The 25-year-old full back, who is capable of playing on either the left or the right, has been with Chelsea since January 2018 and has went on to make 52 appearances across all competitions to date in the time since.
Emerson has found himself in and out of Chelsea boss Frank Lampard’s plans this season with him having been limited to 18 appearances so far, in which he has provided a single assist for his teammates of the Premier League club.
