Inter could move for Chelsea’s Emerson Palmieri, but will only do so if Ivan Perisic departs from the club.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Il Giorno, who report that Emerson could arrive as a possible replacement for the 32-year-old Croatian.

It is thought that Perisic is a player who the Nerazzurri consider to be up for sale, with the 32-year-old entering the final year of his contract, and that the player will depart if the right offer arrives.

Currently nothing concrete has developed on the player’s situation, but it is thought that several Bundesliga clubs are interested in him.

Should Perisic leave then he will be the second left-sided player to go during the window with Ashley Young having already departed for Aston Villa.

The Nerazzurri are already thought to consider a left-sided player a priority arrival in the summer, and this need would be reinforced by the sale of Perisic.

In this situation, it is thought that the club would consider moving for Emerson from Chelsea, with the player thought to be one of their top targets on the left, and would face competition for his signature from the likes of Roma and Napoli.

However, with the 26-year-old thought to be valued at around €20-25 million by his current club, it is not likely that the Nerazzurri would move for him without first selling Perisic.
