He'll be used as a tool in their bid for Lukaku surely.

I am tired of typing the same things again and again so i will just bring back my old posts about him.

They can have him. Emerson is a decent option in a back 4 and insufficient in a back 3. His whole career is one good season at Roma. Since he tore his ACL he hasn't shown anything. Chelsea have set a 20m price tag on him and he certainly isn't worth it. I'd rather bring Dimarco back.

No. His defence is decent, he has the speed and the stamina to play the whole side but he lacks in the attacking third which is quite obvious from his numbers. In 2 1/2 seasons in EPL he has 0 goals and 2 league assists. Wingbacks are very crucial in Conte's system. You can't have someone whose attacking contribution is minimal. On top of that, Chelsea want 20m for him. Marina is known for being a hard negotiator. She isn't giving discounts. So we shouldn't expect to get him for much lower than this.

On the other hand, there's Dimarco. Verona have a 6.5m option but Inter have kept a 50% of a future sale so bringing him back wouldn't cost that much. I am not a huge fan of the player. Imo he needs a lot of work in defence. But he has some interesting skills in the attacking third. Good crosses and set pieces and he also is a scoring threat. Outside top 7 he's the most interesting lwb option of the league.

Would i want Inter to bring back Dimarco if we had money to spend? No. I would prefer Inter to go for someone like Gosens, Kostic or Angelino. But if i have to choose between Dimarco and Emerson i certainly prefer our guy.

The right word to describe Emerson is average. He's average at everything while he doesn't excel at anything. On the other hand, Dimarco is more suited to Contismo, he's 3 years younger and, most importantly, he would cost significantly less. So for me the choice is obvious.

Emerson would be a very poor option for lwb position. He's decent in defence and he has the speed and the stamina to play the whole side but he lacks in the attacking third. His whole career is basically one good season at Roma. Even in that season he had one assist playing as a wingback the whole season. In 3 seasons in EPL he has 0 goals and 2 assists. You need attacking contribution from your wingbacks in 3-5-2. I'd rather keep Dimarco who's more suited for the role.

Emerson could be a decent option if we were looking for a backup lb in a back 4. He isn't good enough to play as a wingback.

Go for a Perisic-Dimarco duo since we don't have money. If Inzaghi doesn't like Dimarco then try to get someone on loan who fits the wingback role. e.g. Junior Firpo. Emerson shouldn't be considered as an option.

Why would Inzaghi and Inter want Emerson? With Conte gone, i cant imagine Inter still wanting Emerson. Even when Conte was the coach, it seemed like largely media inventions. Its not like Conte used him anyways.

Emerson is a last choice backup in his position and has done absolutely nothing since transfering to Chelsea. Average player at absolute best and should realistically cost no more than 5m£, but Chelsea have no reason to sell for such a fee considering their absurd financial power. Paying up towards 20m for an midtable quality player like Emerson would be too absurd to imagine. He would be a pretty big downgrade to Marusic who Inzaghi had playing LWB at Lazio, i dont thin Inzaghi is moving to a much bigger club only to request much worse players than what he had.

Most likely, the media is making stuff up. If Inter is interested in an 'emerson', it would be Emerson Royal from betis, owned by Barca, as a replacement for Hakimi.

Inter would be better of, handing D'Ambrosio another year and let him play on the left, like earlier in his career than signing chelseas Emerson.

Is he fast at least? After Hakimi I've become obsessed with fast players :D

According to Sky, Chelsea want 20m for Emerson. :lol:

You add 5 more and you make a move for Kostic.

Shouldn’t even be that much tbh. Unless he has a fantastic Euros.

Yeah probably like this.

Only cheap deal for Emerson makes ANY sense for us. We can get Dimarco for free and he has played more in past two years than Emerson (Dimarco 3000 minutes, Emerson less than 2500 minutes).

Should make a "Cagliari" on them. Make them give him a golden handshake ffs

That shit doesn't work on Marina. Last year she prefered paying 3 lbs, one of them being persona non grata for the coach, than letting one of them leave on loan. There's zero chance Emerson leaves on a free. She prefers having the reputation of a tough negotiator who sells players really expensive and never gives discounts even if it means she fails to sell deadwood in the end. It helps Chelsea don't necessarily need money from sales.

I don`t want him but seems that Marotta wants him, so little miracles expected here with this kind of budget.

Good point about that Marina, I believe 8m could be enough in this situation. Question is, who is going to buy Perisic?
