Inter Milan are prepared to revive their interest in Chelsea defender Emerson Palmieri at the end of the season.

The Italian has struggled for regular game time in his four years at the Blues, and he could be heading for a summer exit.

He has been linked with numerous Serie A clubs, but Inter have been long-term admirers of the former Roma man.

Meanwhile, Antonio Conte also has a good relationship with Emerson, having signed him for the Blues four years ago.

Emerson was valued at £25m last summer, but he could be available for just £17m with his contract expiring in June 2022. 

The 26-year-old has also been linked with Juventus. He has been fancied to join them in a player-plus-cash deal for Paulo Dybala

Aside from Emerson, the Blues will need to decide on the futures of Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta

All three players have their contracts expiring in 14 months, and they have yet to negotiate terms over an extension.
