According to several Italian outlets, the Brazilian left-back is closer to the Premier League. Roma would save Nainggolan trading out Emerson.
There are two parallel situations that are developing in the Italian capital. The club of Trigoria is training to face Inter at San Siro stadium on Sunday but several players are also thinking about the January transfer window. Nainggolan, Emerson Palmieri, and Strootman are alerted. If the Lupi will receive an adequate bid, one of these players should rapidly pack the bag preparing for a relocation.
Reportedly, Roma would prefer to trade out Emerson Palmieri rather than one of its midfielders. The Brazilian defender is fully fit but Kolarov‘s convincing performances since the beginning of the season could push him away from the Italian capital. Chelsea seems to be interested in the player. The British club could be willing to make a €20 million bid to pay in different installments. This deal would guarantee Roma a solid net profit (the giallorossi purchased the left-back for €2m).
According to ‘La Repubblica’, Emerson Palmieri’s departure would be a less painful but beneficial sale. Juventus is interested in Strootman but the player is not happy to join the bianconeri albeit Allegri fell in love with his skills and temperament.
