Inter ready £19m move for Chelsea outcast Emerson as they also target Giroud
Ideally, Emerson sees his long-term future in west London but,having not started a league game sinceJanuary 22,he is realistic about his chances of convincing Frank Lampard that he should avoid selling him.
Cesar Azpilicueta has been moved to left-back, while Marcos Alonso also remains at the club and thusEmerson's exposure to the first-team has been limited.
Furthermore,Chelsea are targeting a big-money move for Leicester City starBen Chilwell, who may end up costing a similar fee to the £80m ($101m)paid by Manchester United to signHarry Maguire last season.
Lampard is keen to strengthen at left-back, which means that the Italy international is seemingly not in his plans as Inter target a deal.
Conte also remains interested in signing Giroud, who had his contract extended by a year back in April to avoid him leaving on a free transfer, although talks have yet to restart.
Inter had agreed terms with the France international back in January before Chelsea blocked the move, with the Blues having been ready to sell their 33-year-old striker only to fail tofind a suitable replacement to allow the deal to go through.
As a result ofInter's interest in Giroud and Emerson, they are now less keen on making Victor Moses' loan move permanent despite having an option to buy him for £9m (€10m/$11m).
As first revealed by Goal last week, Chelsea have re-opened contract talks with in-formwinger Willian despite strong interest from Arsenal.
This comes after the west Londonersallowed Pedro to leave ona free transfer to Roma despite extending his contract until the end of the season.
Chelsea will also look to offload Michy Batshuayi, who may not play again this season after dropping down the striker pecking order at Stamford Bridge.
Jorginho, meanwhile,has been almost entirely out of the team since the Premier League restart but the Blues are yet to make a firm decision over his future, with Juventus having shown an interest in signing him.
The 28-year-old midfielder, who has been dropped in favour of Billy Gilmour recently, is unhappy at having to play a bit-part role at the club andis hopeful his situation will change in the final weeks of the season.
Chelsea will have to move players onto avoid an overly bloated squad for next season as they have already secured a £47m ($59m) movefor RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, as well as having signed Ajax star Hakim Ziyech.
