sky saying how we are still in for Emerson. The Chelsea one.

It will be cool to get both of them.

"Emerson passes the ball to Emerson" :unsure:

I've seen some people saying how Stefan Radu could follow Inzaghi. He is free and would be a good Kolarov replacement.

These reports are coming from https://www.lalaziosiamonoi.it/il-punto-di/calciomercato-lazio-il-futuro-di-radu-resta-in-bilico-e-l-inter-di-inzaghi-143951
picked up by GdS, so it`s not sure these are the intentions of Marotta.

Radu currently earns 1,3m/season and is free to join any club in 30 days, would be a cheaper backup than Kolarov for instance.

As a backup, Radu won't be bad. And cheap as well.

He would be really bad even if he is here for free on 0$ of wages.

Radu just has to be better than Kolarov to be a success

According to Sky, Inzaghi has asked for Emerson Palmieri. :palm:

Don't have one.
Nothing surprising there, we are looking for easy pickings and putting bets towards semi dead players. Emerson imo is not the worst bet we could go for, unlike the santa clauss dude from other day.

He is already Barcelona player and on loan to Betis, isn't it? Confused here. Read rumours that it is upto Barca to decide whether to keep him or loan/sell him?

Yeah, there was some "co-ownership" or equivalent, maybe they had the option to buy him back. Anyway that guy was Barcelona's "property" all along, they had the control over him, they just had to pay the agreed fee.

When it comes to the other Emerson, if he can be had on loan, I'm up for getting him. I wouldn't buy him directly, too much risk given Chelsea will ask way too much money.

Yeah. It was a kind of co-ownership and Barca had an option to buy him and they simply activated it. The player says he would like to stay at Barcelona and fight for his place but i can't see it happening. They already have Sergino Dest, who joined last summer, and Sergi Roberto so someone would have to go.

As for the other Emerson, you can't get him on loan. He has one year left in his contract. Marina is probably going to ask for 15m.

In case we sell Hakimi, i would prefer Inter going for Florenzi-Kostic duo on the wings than the two Emerson. The cost would probably be similar.

Kostic costs most likely well over 20m€, probably close to 30m€. Florenzi's salary for instance is 4m€ net, which is insane.

No one is going to pay 15m€ for Emerson who hasn't played enough for Chelsea in recent years. In all comps, this past season, less than 1000 minutes. Previous season less than 1500 minutes. In 18/19 he managed to play around 2000 minutes. Granovskaia wants to make way too much money for his assets given what they are worth in the market. Even with 10m€ I'd think he would make small plusvalenza with Emerson.

True. Kostic would cost 25-30m. But it's not like Emerson is going to be cheap. Barca reportedly want 20-25m. At Betis he has mostly played in a back 4. The guy is a gamble.

Florenzi was just an example. My point was i would rather get a quality option on the left in Kostic and a low cost option on the right than a gamble on the right and just a decent option on the left.

Yeah though I wasn't suggesting we should go for Emerson Royal either.

Actually I'm not suggesting anything because it's so vague situation at the moment. My suggestion is keep Hakimi. :D Then figure out something else how to generate money.

gds - Florenzi in pole position. Cost 6-8M. Alternatives, Emerson Royal, Zappacosta and Marusic. Emerson Palmieri also wanted for the left side.
