Chelsea manager Frank Lampard’s apparent style of management on the touchline and in daily training sessions has reportedly made Emerson decide his long-term future is away from the Blues.
 
In a report via the Express taken from Italian source Tuttosport, Lampard’s style of management is said to be the driving force for the Italian international Emerson wanting to move to Italy in the next transfer window – the left-back is described to dislike working for ‘sergeants’.
 
Juventus are said to be the frontrunners to sign Emerson should Chelsea call-time on the 25-year-old’s two-year spell in west London, with a fee expected to be in the region of £25 million.
 
Emerson found himself out of Frank Lampard Premier League starting line-up in recent weeks, not featuring in the top-flight since January, as well as not getting any minutes in the Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich.
 
Chelsea are being constantly linked to signing a new left-back when the transfer window opens, with Leicester’s Ben Chilwell touted as the most likely big-name arrival – this would signal a likely sale of Emerson as Lampard looks to put his own stamp on the squad.
