Chelsea could agree swap deal for South American No.10 forward

Chelsea are supposedly willing to include Italian pair Jorignho and Emerson Palmieri in any proposed deal for Serie A champions, Juventus attacker Paulo Dybala.

The Argentine forward has under 18 months left to run on his contract with the Old Lady and is being rumoured with a summer sale, although Andrea Pirlo has affirmed that Dybala will stay in Turin for the 2021-22 season despite interest from the hosts of European teams.

Pirlo’s comments do not appear to have deterred interested teams, though, and his future beyond 2022 stays unclear, so the Serie A defending champions could very well look to cash in on the player this summer rather than risking to lose him for free.

West London giants are one of several sides rumoured with a bid, and according to Tuttosport, Thomas Tuchel is willing to sacrifice Jorginho and Emerson to secure services of Dybala for the 2021-22 campaign.

Jorginho continues to be rotated in and out of the team since Tuchel arrived at Stamford Bridge, whereas Emerson stays the Blues’ third-choice left-back behind Ben Chilwell and Marcos Alonso, and he has played just 88 minutes of Premier League football this campaign.

Real Madrid, Arsenal and Man Utd have all been credited with an interest in Argentine international forward, who has managed just three goals from 14 Serie A games in an injury-hit season.
