Chelsea are willing to pay as much as £3m to recall Emerson from his season-long loan at Lyon.


It was noted that the Italian was loaned out to the Ligue 1 club last summer with an option to buy for around £12 million if the club see him as an asset.

Although it was noted that He has since established himself as a regular in the left-back/left wing-back spot for the French club.

According to football analyst saying that Les Gones are likely to trigger the option to buy, but the Blues are now desperate to have him back.

With Ben Chilwell has been ruled out with a season-ending knee injury. This has left a void in the left wing-back spot for the Blues.

Looking at the squad showing that Marcos Alonso is currently the only specialist option in the first-team squad. The Blues are keen to find a competitor for him to avoid future problem.

Rather than spending big on a new signing according to club management they will prefer to recall Emerson, but Lyon are reluctant to release him this month as he is seriously engaged with club activities.

There was no recall clause agreed last summer. The Blues are ready to pay a £3m compensation fee to convince Les Gones.
