Chelsea star Emerson Palmieri has revealed his desire to a Premier League hit with Chelsea despite strong interest from Inter Milan according to Goal.
The Brazil-born Italian international has finally had some constant playing time courtesy a dip in the form and fitness of Marcos Alonso in recent weeks.
Speaking to Goal, the left back reflected on adapting to life in England:
“It is true that in these last few months I have played a lot more, but I already felt I am a player who is well adapted to English football,” Emerson said ahead of Chelsea’s 2-2 draw against Burnley
“There is a lot more intensity to the game here, both going forward and certainly in the defensive phase so, without having learned to be more intense as a player, you could not play in my role here in England. I feel I’m well adapted to that.
“Here, at times, the tactics are left behind, and it becomes about intensity and strength so, if you are that kind of player, it’s easier to adapt yourself to the game here.”
