The publication added Inter appear to be in the driving seat to land Emerson, with the Italian champions said to be confident of sealing a deal in the coming weeks.

Inter are understood to be in the market for a new fullback to replace ex-Man United star Ashley Young who is on his way out on a free transfer.

Nerazzurri's interest in Emerson comes at a time they are without a manager following the departure of Antonio Conte.

Be that as it may, club chiefs want to bolster the squad for Conte's successor thought to be Simone Inzaghi.

Emerson, meanwhile, is among a string of players earmarked for sale as Chelsea plans to trim their squad in preparation for the new season.

Thomas Tuchel is expected to offload a number of fringe players deemed surplus to requirements as he seeks to raise funds for his transfer targets.

Others include Tammy Abraham, Olivier Giroud, Ross Barkley, and Danny Drinkwater.
